Ritter baseball classic
by Quark on October 1, 2009Lawrence 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.
