California: The Baseball Capital of the World
From the Majors, College, High School and More, the State Has No Equal
by Mark Tennis
Is there a better place in the world for baseball than California? This look at the sport from the major leagues down through the colleges, high schools and even Little League argues that there may not be anywhere as strong. With an emphasis on the many great baseball players from California high schools, the book includes rare photos of Jackie Robinson and Ted Williams plus lists all-time top players from Southern California, Northern California and from select regions. Why does the state have more College World Series titles, more Little League World Series titles and more ex-high school players in the World Series by far than any other state? It's not just the weather and the population. Some of the best high school coaches in state history offer their reasons as does the author. It's a unique look at America's Pastime that any fan of any team in the Golden State should check out.
