    Celebrate a century and a half of horse racing in Saratoga Springs with stories of the events, horse and people who have made its summers so special.Since the inaugural meeting of August 1863, Saratoga Springs is home to one of the oldest sports venues in the country and has been the scene of memorable races, often featuring legends of the sport. Although some of the epic moments are still familiar today, such as Upset’s defeat of Man o’ War in the 1919 Sanford Memorial, many of the triumphs and defeats that were once famous have been forgotten. Few remember the filly Los Angeles, who thrived at Saratoga, winning sixteen stakes races, or the influential, sometimes suspicious, reasons why the track was closed three times for a total of six years. Authors Allan Carter and Mike Kane take a look back at these and other important but neglected stories and present statistics from the pre-NYRA years and a rundown of the greatest fields assembled at America’s oldest track.“As the subtitle promises, the book consists of unexpected tales regarding Saratoga people, horses, and happenings--things that even certain racing historians had no previous clue about. Kane and Carter are uniquely well-equipped to guide readers down this curious road less traveled.” —Mary Simon, Daily Racing Forum

    More than 45 million children play youth sports in the United States each year, and most are coached by parent volunteers with good intentions but little training. This lack of training and an overemphasis on winning often results in stress and frustration for coaches and players alike, which can discourage young athletes so much that they walk away from sports altogether. 
    With this guide for amateur parent coaches, Dr. Jennifer Etnier, author of Bring Your 'A' Game, aims to change that. Dr. Etnier offers a system of positive coaching that can be applied to any sport, from the beginner level to high school athletics, and explains that good coaching requires working with young athletes at their developmental level and providing feedback designed to keep children engaged and having fun. 
    Etnier gives easy-to-understand guidance on important aspects of successful coaching—including information on the development of children's motor skills, communication with a young athlete's parents, and nurturing a growth-oriented mind-set-making this a critical resource for youth coaches of all experience levels.

    “Hockey historians will appreciate the precision action shots taken of the first cohort of NHL stars . . . a record of how hockey has evolved.” —Winnipeg Free Press   The hockey stars of the 1950s and ’60s—Rocket Richard, Gordie Howe, Dave Keon, Bobby Hull, Jean Beliveau, Terry Sawchuk, Tim Horton, and others—were some of the most passionate players in National Hockey League history. These skillful and often colorful athletes played exhilarating hockey and were national heroes in a time when only six teams and fewer than 150 players battled for the Stanley Cup.  Hockey’s Original 6 celebrates the most dynamic players and exciting moments of the era in more than 120 photographs from the legendary Harold Barkley Archives, including a number of never—or rarely seen—images. From 1942 until the early ’70s, Barkley was the Toronto Star’s leading sports photographer. He pioneered the use of electronic flash to capture stop-action hockey, and his dramatic work—both black and white and vibrant color—define the pre-expansion period.   Two informative essays by Mike Leonetti—hockey historian, archivist, and prolific sportswriter—set Barkley and the photos in context, and short image captions illuminate the players and their feats. The late hockey legend Jean Béliveau provides a personal and insightful foreword.   “Will take your breath away . . . a collection that captures players’ grimaces, suture tracks, missing teeth and Brylcreem-lacquered hair; their primitive equipment, joy and considerable pain, even the depth of snow beneath their tubular-steel blades, the individual planks of lumber that were the arena boards, and the octagonal orange crests on the Tyer Rubber Co. pucks whose impact has smudged the fire-engine-red goalposts.” —The Montreal Gazette

    Texas oil millionaire Lamar Hunt’s pursuit of a professional football franchise led to the formation of a new league and ultimately a revolutionary change in the pro game itself. Hunt’s new team, the Dallas Texans, began play in the American Football league in 1960, and following the 1962 season, moved to Kansas City. They were renamed the Chiefs, and one of football’s great success stories was established. This chronicle of the history of the Kansas City Chiefs franchise covers everything—its beginning in Dallas with head coach Hank Stram, the great 1962 AFL championship game, the move to Kansas City, the AFL’s merger with the NFL, the team’s disappointing loss to the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl I, the magnificent victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV, the down-and-out years, and the return to the playoffs under Dick Vermeil. All historical moments, players, games, and coaches are included. This newly revised encyclopedia offers statistics and biographies for each and every player that has been part of the Kansas City Chiefs. Included within is a foreword by former player Otis Taylor. The Kansas City Chiefs Encyclopedia includes hundreds of photos of players, game action, stadiums, and more. The complete reference book on the Chiefs, the encyclopedia is a book that all true Kansas City fans must have.
