Spotting to page edges, heavy on the top-edge. No other marks or stains. Corners sharp and binding tight and square. Jacket shows minor wear at corners. Protected in a new mylar cover. Story of Major League Baseball's American League Washington Senators' move to Arlington, Texas to become the Texas Rangers. Written by the "voice of the Senators," the book has an insider's viewpoint. Hall-of-Famer Ted Williams, who managed the Senators before their move and resigned after one season in Arlington, is featured prominently in the book. Bob Short, the owner, had previously bought and moved the basketball Lakers from Minneapolis to Los Angeles. Had he intended to move the Senators all along when he bought them three years prior to the move? Baseball and big business. Other players like Denny McLain, Curt Flood, and Frank Howard are featured in the book. Former Senator players have signed the book on the half-title page: Richie Scheinblum, Ed Brinkman, Frank Howard, Toby Harrah, Ted Kubiak, and Dick Bosnan. Frank Howard added to his signature: "1968, 1970 A.L. HR Champion." A unique collectible for Senators/Rangers baseball fans.
