As part of their ‘Images of Baseball” series, Arcadia Publishing presents The Portland Sea Dogs, authored by Wendy Sotos.
This 127-page look at the history of the team that returned baseball to the state of Maine in 1994 is a photographic tour of the people, players, and ballpark that has become one of Minor League Baseball’s most successful franchises. Unfortunately the pictures are all black-and-white, which does leave some of the vividness of the story out.
Sotos took this compilation of phots and added text to highlight some of the many players that have come through this double-A affiliate of the Florida Marlins from its inception until 2002, and the Boston Red Sox from 2003 until the present.
An interesting read for those seeking an analysis of this particular club, or for those from the Portland area.
