Batter Up! Hit a Home Run @ NCC Libraries

Philadelphia Phillies fans will be cheering tonight when the first game of the 2008 World Series starts at 8:00 p.m. After our “boys of summer” triumph (just keeping a positive outlook here!), the NCC Libraries can keep baseball fans busy until spring with a terrific selection of books about our national pastime. And don't miss the History Resource Center: U.S. database, where you can learn more about the early days of baseball and its inventor, Abner Doubleday (that's him in the photo).
