Synopsis

From 1921 through 1930, the young George E. Outland, who would go on to be a professor and United States Congressman, documented his love for baseball by arriving early at major league and Pacific Coast League ballgames armed with his camera and an album of his own photographs. He used his photographs to gain access to some of the greatest players and ballparks of his era, and his subjects included such legends as Walter Johnson, Paul Waner, Sam Crawford, Babe Ruth, and many more. Collected here are more than 400 of Outland's photographs from the twenties, along with the stories of the ballplayers and ballparks depicted. This book also includes Outland's homerun log, a record of the 1,503 homers that he witnessed at 66 different ballparks from 1922 to 1974.
