    ""Oh, the game was very different in my day from what it's like today. I don't mean just that the fences were further back and the ball was deader and things like that. I mean it was more fun to play ball then."" - Davy Jones First published in 1966, "The Glory of Their Times" is a universally hailed classic. A loving look back at the way baseball used to be, and the legends who played the game--immortals like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, and many others--it's a delightfully evocative work full of fascinating ...

JOHN D

A window into the past.

by JOHN D on Jul 19, 2010

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.

Quark

Ritter baseball classic

by Quark on Oct 1, 2009

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.
