Whether Connecticut fans were cheering on Connecticut teams in baseball's major and minor leagues or watching their native sons participate in America's favorite pastime all across the country, they have taken satisfaction in the contributions of the Nutmeg State. As former Commissioner of Baseball Fay Vincent notes in his foreword, Don Harrison has lovingly assembled the best selections from a lifetime spent covering Connecticut's corner of the game. Read twenty-five interviews from his own forty-three-year career and discover even older traditions that date back to Hartford's entrance into the majors in the 1870s. You might disagree with Harrison's choices for a Connecticut All-Time Team—that's half the fun—but you will find it hard to resist the enthusiasm that has united so many fans of the sport.
