"The book includes exhaustive research conveyed in detailed accounts of each of the selected seasons…. [F]or the reader who loves baseball and its history, especially that of the Twin Cities, the book is a treasure."--Midwest Diamond Report Chronicling the 1902-1960 rivalry between the Minneapolis Millers and St. Paul Saints, this book focuses on the 18 seasons during which one or the other of the Twin City rivals captured the American Association championship. Each chapter includes an introduction explaining the general status of the pennant-winning team--including biographical information on key players--followed by detailed game accounts and a season summary with critical statistics. Written in the present tense, the game accounts are the meat of the book, immersing the reader in the action of baseball as it was played decades ago. Woven into the game accounts are items of interest--player inquiries, team standings in the pennant race--which help the reader develop a range of viewpoints.

Pope John Paul II has proclaimed an unprecedented number of new saints and blesseds in the 25 years of his pontificate and shows few signs of slowing the process, despite the criticism from at least one cardinal that the altars are getting 'a little crowded'. The proclamations have been made in a large number of countries, from which the new saints and blesseds have come. This reflects a deliberate policy of strengthening the faith of local churches against the threats from totalitarianism, secularism, Pentecostalism, etc. (the Vatican tends to see most of the 'outside' world as a threat). There has also been a deliberate policy to seek more examples of holiness from outside the ranks of clergy and religious. The twentieth century has been seen as the century of martyrs, largely those of Nazism and Communism, and they feature prominently - those of nominally Catholic military regimes are less favoured. The Introduction will make such points. This volume proposes to cover a four-year period in the Butler's style. Blesseds appearing in the 1995-2000 volumes who have since been canonized will have their entries updated and expanded as necessary; new blesseds will be featured with the information that is available - which in the case of some Third-World figures is not very much. Entries will therefore range from around 3,000 words to 200, with an average of some 800. The number of entries will be approximately 80.

Ethel Pochocki, whimsically and unforgettably, presents a new set of heavenly friends to readers young and old in this third collection of Once Upon a Time Saints stories. Beginning in the dark of December, the start of the Church Year, there are stories and poems for each month, all bursting with saintly--not to mention angelic--deeds and happenings. Each tale or verse--whether of mystical apparitions in a tiny Irish village or of friars who float in the air or of entire countries single-handedly converted to Christianity--makes it quite plain that heaven doesn't keep to its place at all, but is happily determined to spill over into earthly life--here, there and . . . all around the year.
