This reader-friendly book of Tigers lore and legend is a quick read. It covers everything from the history to the stadium to fun facts (did you know that a former Tiger is now a U.S. Senator?). The pages with quotes from the players are inspiring and moving. The pictures are engaging, and there is even a website for more facts called EXTRA INNINGS.

Arlington Independent School District Professional Library, 2012



The updated Team Spirit series by Norwood House Press covers both National and American League teams. The author has added an emphasis on content that will be appreciated by true fans of baseball including a chapter on historical debates surrounding the teams and a look at souvenirs and memorabilia. Readers are also able to explore the history and key players for each team through content that is rich with photographs and graphics. Each book in the series contains the exact same chapters. This feature would make this series a great set of books for introducing students to non-fiction text features. It would also support a class research project.

Arlington Independent School District, July 2012



“The Team Spirit series covers all the teams in the three major professional sports leagues—baseball, football, and basketball. Each book follows the exact same format, and the large print, colorful pictures, maps, time lines, and quotes make for an easy read and offer an eye-catching layout. Fans of the teams will not find much new information as the series is more of a basic introduction. Those with little knowledge of the sport or of the specific team would be well served to peruse these titles. Although most books provide a nice and simple introduction, some material is left out or forgotten. Several Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl titles were not listed on the time line of important team events. Most middle school sports fans will enjoy the series, but even some of these students might find the reading and material too simplistic. The series could also be useful for ESL students or teachers looking for low level/high interest nonfiction.”
