Booklist Review

The author of 23 other baseball titles (the first, Baseball When the Grass Was Real [BKL S 1 75], is also the best) profiles the top 18 home run hitters of all time, beginning with Babe Ruth and concluding with Mike Schmidt, just recently retired from the Phillies. Among the others are Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Reggie Jackson. Dozens of black-and-white photos and boxed statistics for each slugger illustrate. Timeless, pleasant reading for fans, especially younger ones who hunger for a bit of their favorite game's past. Chart of yearly major-league home run leaders since 1920 appended. --Wes Lukowsky
