Most books that study professional sports concentrate on teams and leagues. In contrast, Home Team studies the connections between professional team sports in North America and the places where teams play. It examines the relationships between the four major professional team sports - baseball, basketball, football, and hockey - and the cities that attach their names, their hearts, and their increasing amount of tax dollars to big league teams. Michael Danielson is particularly interested in the political aspects of the connections between professional sports teams and cities. Home Team collects a vast amount of data, much of it difficult to find elsewhere, including information on the relocation of franchises, expansion teams, new leagues, stadium development, and the political influence of the rich cast of characters involved in the ongoing contests over where teams will play and who will pay.

"It will be the authority on the subject for a long time coming."--Frank Deford, Newsweek "In America, a professional sports team tends to play a big part in the emotional life of its host city; it nearly broke New York's heart when the city's beloved Brooklyn Dodgers threw it over for L.A. Michael Danielson knows all about home-team loyalty; growing up in Brooklyn in the '50s, the Dodgers were his first love. In this book, he combines that personal interest with a professional one in urban politics."--Washington Post Book World "Danielson examines every side of the business of sport, from ceilings on player salaries to leases on grounds, to cable TV rights... [His] account ... could not be more timely or relevant."--Albert Scardino, New Statesman "Fascinating historical evidence presented in a fluid writing style."--John R. Thelin, Philadelpia Inquirer "Danielson has ingested an enormous amount of information and come up with some interesting observations."--Allen Barra, Chicago Tribune
