About the Book
Nestled in the Northern California town of Roseville, historic Charlie Richards Field serves as the main backdrop for Richard Shedd's documentary photography book chronicling life in a typical American Little League. Shedd's vibrant images memorialize the transformation a baseball player makes as they go from first learning the game through their final Little League season as highly skilled teenagers. This large 11x13 premium hardcover book is filled with over 100 beautifully printed photographs that portray the leadership, character, courage and loyalty that defines the Little League experience. Also featured is Mr. Vencil Brown, who has spent the past 59 years serving as a Little League volunteer operating the Richards Field snack bar. If you have ever played Little League baseball or had a child that has played, you are sure to enjoy this retrospective look into one of America's greatest traditions.
