Baseball

[Baseball] in the Upsets & Comebacks series describes an event most young sports fans will easily recall: the Boston Red Sox’s historic 2004 season, marked by their playoffs win against longtime rival, the Yankees, followed by their World Series triumph against the Cardinals. Numerous large, clear photographs, both contemporary and archival, help tell the tale, which is narrated here in brief, topical spreads punctuated by bright-red fact boxes and headline banners. The text overuses exclamation points, but it delivers the exciting story cleanly, starting with the very first World Series (which Boston won in 1903), then documenting the team’s long slump. Appended material includes trivia, a time line, a short bibliography, two Web sites, and a glossary, which features baseball terminology as well as potentially challenging words (defeated, elimination).
