Présentation de l'éditeur

Baseball is "America's national pastime" and the intellectuals' favourite sport. It is a game with a long and colourful history, and hence was a natural subject for an Anecdotes book. This brings together stories from reliable historical sources, anecdotes gleaned from interviews, and some obvious tall tales that have made their way into the mythology of baseball. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Semi-Interesting Anecdotes, Not-So-Crisply Told 24 novembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is not a bad book: It's just very sluggisly paced without much style. In the hands of real sportswriters it could have been a gas. The authors are far too reverential: Cooperstown to them is some kind of holy shrine, and anyone with even a smidgen of skepticism is an Unbeliever. Hey, it's already late 1998. Why write like it's 1958?

Nice Anecdotes 13 novembre 2008
Par K.A.Goldberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Daniel Okrent and Steve Wulf have compiled over 300 pages of major league anecdotes and trivia, dating from pre-Civil War to the modern era. The authors begin with Alexander Cartright and Abner DoubleDay, and just keep on going. There's a lot here in these readable pages, from personalities like Cap Anson, Babe Ruth, Cy Young, Willie Mays, Pete Rose, etc., to some of the more more successful and more colorful teams, key World Series', etc. The book covers each era, from the post-civil war teams of the later 1800's, to the dead ball era, the roaring 1920's, the Depression and War years, postwar baseball, expansion, etc. Hard core fans will recognize many of the anecdotes, but there's so many here that some are bound to be new. Actually, I wish the authors had included more pages of information, but this still makes good reading for baseball fans.

Thinking fans should also read Okrent's NINE INNINGS, a dated but superb look at baseball and baseball strategy.

Here is a treasury of great stories from the game of baseball. Collected and ordered from the 1800's down to today. You see some of the great characters from the game, and a look back to simpler times. Some very amusing stories are sure to keep you interested.

Great book for baseball fans on the east coast 2 janvier 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cassette
This book does a great job of telling stories about Yankees, Red Socks, and the Yankees.
This book has a lot of history and, unfortunately, a lot of actual quotes (profanity and all)! Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the book, I just can't let my son read it.
There was more listed in the book about Steinbrenner's early years as the Yankees' owner than the decade of the Big Red Machine and the oldest professional baseball team combined. I admit that I am a Reds' fan.

The Best Baseball Book you can find 12 novembre 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is truly the best historical baseball book you could possibly read, in my opinion not intended to be read cronologically but rather reading the anecdotes whenever you feel like it, it's funny, charismatic and it would make an incredible gift for the true baseball fan, it's for kids, adults, seniors and everyone who really apprecciates baseball like I do
