Summary

Summary

Whether football or baseball, golf or track, sports have played an important part in Cleveland's history. Bob Feller, Jesse Owens, Bill Veeck, Larry Doby, Lou Boudreau, Jim Brown, Bob Lemon, Hank Greenberg -- they are only a few of the hundreds of personalities who have made Cleveland one of the great sports capitals in the country. Over 150 photographs bring alive the proud tradition of sports in Cleveland.

""The book, written with a keen interpretive sense, documents how sports began from disorganized, confined contests to their present incarnations as near religions."" -- The Plain Dealer
