Item description for Nationals on Parade: 70 Years of Washington Nationals Photos by Mark Stang...
Over 225 black and white photographs span 70 years of baseball history in this stunning collection of Nationals images. From the days of Sam Rice and Joe Cronin to Roy Sievers and Harmon Killebrew, the famous and forgotten fill these pages and recall the glory of Washington Nationals baseball. Culled from 12 public and private photo archives, this collection includes dozens of previously unpublished images. Many of the older photographs were locked away in dusty files fir decades until appearing here for the first time. Printer's marks were removed and the detail in the images was revealed through careful restoration. Most of the photographs have been reproduced to near their original size to faithfully record what the photographer saw. These photographs record the changing face of baseball through the century by documenting the evolution of equipment, ballparks, uniforms and batting styles. Players, managers, owners, and broadcasters---they're all here, with captions that bring their stories to life. From the glory days of Bucky Harris to the agony of 1971. From Walter Johnson to Frank Howard and everyone in between.

The Nats in Pix Aug 26, 2007
This book is a collection of wonderful pictures of all the Washington players we heard about as kids. I never saw Bucky Harris play or manage, but he was a scout for the expansion Senators. Sam Rice, Joe Judge, Muddy Ruel... they are all in the book. While the players are in the foreground of pictures, there's alot going on in the background. There are also interesting views of Griffith Stadium and the then new DC Stadium (RFK)in the background. Locker room shots that match the movie shot from Damn Yankees. Uniforms through the years, how the fans dressed, ushers, cleaning crew; it's all here - in the background anyway. Nice Griffth family shot when Calvin was a young boy. Not filled with stats, this book is more like the family album with interesting captions.
