Overview

In this rendering of the beloved song Take Me Out to the Ballgame, Jim Burke captures an exciting era of America's favorite pastime - as well as the incredible story of one controversial contest that went down in the history books: In 1908, the year the anthem was written, one of the all-time most memorable match-ups in baseball history occurred when the New York Giants faced the reigning World Series champion Chicago Cubs with their greatest weapon - Christy Mathewson, the greatest pitcher in Giants history and America's first true sports superstar.

Filled with fan-pleasing trivia and nostalgic paintings, here is a remarkable orchestration that brings the sights, sounds and smells of the ballpark, a century ago, vividly to life.

In this Smithsonian Institution book, a young boy and his male caregiver ¿ seen only obliquely ¿ go out to a ballgame. The text of the book consists of the lyrics of the popular song. Young children will enjoy the bold eye-catching caricatures that illustrate this story, as well as having the words sung to them. Older children will enjoy the brief appendix, which explains the origin of the song and how it became a baseball tradition.
