  • A window into the past. Jul 19, 2010
    by JOHN D

    This book is an absolute gem,the stories are told in the old ballplayers own words as they were recorded by lawrence Ritter back in the early sixties.The accounts of the stars of the dead ball era give the reader a real insight into the character of the game played back then.

    by Quark

    Lawrence Ritter is one of the leading writers
    of baseball history, both oral and pictorial.
    This is a warm account based on oral
    histories of major league players from the
    first half of the 20th century--not necessarily
    Hall-of-Fame performers, but definitely those
    who enjoyed, as adults, playing a kids' game
    at the professional level of skill.
    There's braggarts and there's humble men
    here. Enjoy it for its "glory"--the statistical
    accuracy may be lacking in some memories,
    but the flavor and the emotions remain for
    the reader to experience.
