Staff Pick: Brothers at Bat

Brothers at Bat

Documents the story of the Baseball Hall of Fame honorees, tracing how the Acerra family of New Jersey formed their own semi-pro baseball team in the 1930s and became the longest-running all-brother team in history.

Wouldn’t it be fun to have 11 brothers?  And wouldn’t it be cool if you all loved baseball and made up an entire baseball team?  I had never heard of such a thing until I read this book about a semi-pro baseball team in the 1930’s with enough brothers to have a full team and three on the bench. The Acerra brothers played together for many years until they all grew up, got married and had children of their own. Read their remarkable story.
