The 258 page book includes many photos never before published, as well as an alphabetical list of every Canadian who played in the major leagues from 1871 to 2008, and all members of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.
Over the fense is out! Sells for $18.95 plus tax, and is on sale at the CBHFM. Author Jim Shearon will be signing copies at the June 20th Induction Ceremony
