Reviews

"How could such a profound love affair between a city and its baseball team turn so toxic? Home of the Braves grapples with that issue, and its conclusions may surprise you. They surprised me."
--from the foreword by Bob Buege, author of The Milwaukee Braves: A Baseball Eulogy
"The truth behind one of the darkest divorces in sports history, revealing details often lost in the shadows of nostalgia. Steele's extensive research uncovers a war of greed, jealousy, and contempt between the Braves and Milwaukee's civic leaders."
--William Povletich, author of Milwaukee Braves: Heroes and Heartbreak
