The book features teams as old as the 1902 Nevada Lunatics and as new as the 2011 Omaha Storm Chasers and is packed with:
- Action shots and team logos
- Entertaining facts about each team
- Similar bizarre team names below each entry
You will see the humorous and sometimes surprising backgrounds of team names. Like how the Altoona Curve team name sounds like something a pitcher would throw, but actually takes its name after a piece of local railroad history. Or how the Wichita Izzies had a supporter so dedicated, they named the team after him.
Root for the Home Team: Minor League Baseball's Most Off-the-Wall Team Names and the Stories Behind Them is a unique book any baseball fan will love.
