Description
From spring training in 1962 to the explosive World Series of 2002, Roger Angell—inaugural winner of the PEN/ESPN Lifetime Achievement Award for Literary Sports Writing—has been in the front row, chronicling the ups and downs of baseball for The New Yorker. Focusing not only on such iconic stars as Pete Rose, Willie Mays, Pedro Martinez, and Barry Bonds, Angell's essays also deliver the human interest stories, and continually reassess the appeal of America's favorite pastime. The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Sportswriter contributes an emphatic introduction to this collection.

"Angell is the best baseball essayist around. His relaxed prose glides across the page with a confident grace that most writers—let alone baseball writers—would kill for."—Chicago Tribune
