Aside from the exploits of the successful LSU and Southern programs, younger generations might not think Baton Rouge has much of a baseball history. But in Baseball in Baton Rouge, Michael and Janice Bielawa bring to life the city’s interesting past with the American pastime.
The book is a fascinating pictorial journey that weaves through Baton Rouge’s brushes with the big leagues all the way to championship performances of local teams.
Informative captions complement the black-and-white images that provide snapshots of the city’s baseball timeline. From Hall of Famers (Babe Ruth, Mel Ott and Lou Brock, to name a few) to the Baton Rouge River Bats, Baseball in Baton Rouge thoroughly details a rich baseball history in a city otherwise known for its obsession with football.
