Review “Every once in a while, a book publisher comes up with a great concept
for a series of books that deserve more than superficial recognition. Such a
series is “The Greatest (fill in the blank) Stories Ever Told”, anthologies
that should win places on many bedside tables. On the long winter nights that
lie ahead, such stories make great reading.” —The Lexington County Chronicle
Read more From the Back Cover From the olden days of flannel uniforms and
metal spikes to those of retractable-domed stadiums and nine-figure player
salaries; from the golden era of Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb to that of present-day
sluggers like Barry Bonds and Ken Griffey, Jr., perhaps no single athletic
pursuit has managed to capture the imagination and devotion of the sporting
public as much as the game of baseball. And it is no wonder that some of our
finest writers have weighed in on this rich and fascinating subject.In The
Greatest Baseball Stories Ever Told, editor Jeff Silverman collects some of
the best writings, both fact and realistic fiction, that reflect the resonant
history, tradition, agony and ecstasy of what has been affectionately dubbed
our national pastime.With contributions from: John Updike, Gay Talese, Pete
Hamill, Gary Smith, Roy Blount, Jr., Red Barber, Zane Grey, Vin Scully, Doris
Kearns Goodwin, and many more. Read more See all Editorial Reviews
