Can you name the teams that have played in over 22 different sports. Perhaps you know the nicknames of some (there are over 2600 teams listed) of the teams but do you know why or how they got these names. Or how long the team or league lasted.
Major Sports Leagues features a listing of major league teams in 22 sports: arena football, baseball, basketball, bowling, cricket, cycling, football, golf, hockey, indoor lacrosse, indoor soccer, lacrosse, martial arts, polo, rodeo, roller hockey, rugby, soccer, softball, tennis, ultimate disc, and volleyball.
Beginning with 1871, the book covers over 100 distinct major sports leagues, more than 1600 franchises, and over 2600 team names. It allows the reader to track a franchise through its complete history, including its origin, any name changes, transfers from one city or location to another, the league or leagues in which it played, the years it played, and its ultimate fate. Teams are presented by location, by league, and by team nickname. Also included is the origin or significance of each team’s name.
The book focuses on North American leagues and features major league teams from the United States, Canada, and Mexico, although European, Asian, and Australian teams that have played in North American leagues are also included. Major Sports Leagues also contains a team and league index and a bibliography.
