Fine. No dust jacket as issued. TRADE PAPERBACK in fine condition. Short interviews with various people who work in and around baseball: broadcasters, agents, groundskeepers, a few managers, coaches & players. Somewhat uneven, but the best pieces, like Andy Strasberg's recollection of his relationship with Roger Maris, are wonderful and reveal oft-hidden aspects of baseball & its appeal. A rather underrated book. CASEY nominee as the best baseball book of the year. Money back guarantee if not 100% satisfied.
Octavo, softcover, VG in blue pictorial wraps. A sport, a career, a business, a passion--it's all baseball, and it's all in this book--the ultimate insider's account of the national pastime. Every aspect of the game comes alive as 54 poeple, some celebrated, some unknown, talk about the workaday world of baseball. 345 p.
