Author Jon Lindenblattabout this book: Baseball Teams & Mascots- The Illustrated Guide.

Growing up, baseball was my life. It's how I related to the world around me, from geography to statistics, most of what I learned had something to do with the ballpark. After growing up a bit (at least in age!) I began searching for a way to impart a part of this knowledge to the next generation, including my two little boys. After meeting an Illustrator at a comic event, my dream was given some momentum, and after many months working on this project together, we are proud to release this labor of love, 'Trolley Dodgers, Pinstriped Yankees and Wearing Red Sox: How MLB Teams Got Their Names' was finished and ready for publication.

Together with legendary illustrator Brian Kong, I have put together this mine of information about the MLB teams, their names, mascots and history, all in an alluring illustrated package. A sure hit for kids of all ages!

The book includes illustrations of the ballparks, mascots and more, all wrapped up in stunning design sure to catch the attention of kids and adults alike.
