“Inside the Baseball Hall of Fame” features many stories/items that readers either should know about or be reminded of with a new Major League Baseball season underway.

There are 200 full-color photographs in the book, including Jackie Robinson's “Day-by-Day sheet” of his statistics from the season he broke the color barrier in 1947; the mitt Yogi Berra used to catch Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series; and the ball then-President William H. Taft threw to Washington Senators pitcher Walter Johnson on Opening Day in 1910.

The collection is such that any given number of readers will find their own “look at this” selections that they want to share.

And it's likely that many readers of “Inside the Baseball Hall of Fame,” especially baseball enthusiasts, will wish this one never ended.
