Slices of Americana and Recommended Reading

Author Jason Love’s book Slices of Americana is available through Sunbury Press. This book is about road trips to various baseball historic sites. Some of these sites include the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum in Baltimore, and the former home of legendary Negro League player Judy Johnson. Slices of Americana also touches upon Little League baseball, Opening Day, the Philadelphia Phillies, and other baseball related themes. Jason’s book takes to the open road and invites the reader to join him for the trip.

He also has a short book on NJ minor league baseball teams from a few years ago. It can be found here.
