Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2016 April)

Gr 5–8—The excitement of baseball unfolds through the historical highlights of individual teams in this engaging series. There is enough of an inclusion of stats and figures to give baseball fanatics a vivid view of the lifespan of each team. "Think About It" sections at the end of most chapters inspire speculative thinking. The books might seem a little disjointed, as they don't follow definite time lines, instead hopping from modern to historical persons (though there is a "Key Dates" time line at the end of each book). Young readers who are really huge fans won't mind this, even if adults find it a little wonky. A large amount of informational asides can break up the narrative of the stories told in each section. In general, the information is more in-depth than many other books about the featured teams one might pull off the shelf. VERDICT Definitely buy the ones for big-name teams and teams with local appeal.
