08/20/2013 / SubmitMyPR /

MindStir Media author Richard L. Chilton brings readers back to the name, to the story behind the name, to the moment of its happening, and its results in 638 pages. Richard said, "It's a great guide for baseball fans and media professionals alike taking you back to the creation of the National League in 1876."

"I found that oftentimes (in baseball) people want to know who was the first to do something," said the author. "You get a one name answer, but you want to know more about where and how it happened… So I decided to do this question and answer book and then elaborate on the answers."

“The book is not only an interesting read for every fan but also very helpful to those involved in baseball, such as radio and television broadcasters to have on-hand to use as reference," Mr. Chilton concluded.

The Groundbreakers! is available in paperback and digitally at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble for $17.95 or less.
