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.

Ritter baseball classic
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.
