5.0 étoiles sur 5 Baseball before all the money 28 mai 2014
Par MichaelAT - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This book about the deadball era (early 1900's), tells you that anything was legal (or illegal) during those times. Fights, gambling
fans pouring on the field and more. Very good for the baseball fan.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 but I find that I would like more specifics 20 août 2014

This is not, per se, a book of deadball narratives as much as it is a sort of stream-of-consciousness narratives commenting on the generality of the subject matter while loosely citing some historical examples. It is still interesting, but I find that I would like more specifics; more of those sorts of stories that humanize the heroes of yesteryear and that make the history of our national game come alive; somewhat in the manner of the biographies on the SABR website and many other baseball history volumes.

I do recommend this book, but somewhat regret that it doesn't make itself more personable, because the author is really on to something.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This Nostalgic Period of Time in Baseball's History Left Something to Be Desired. 1 mars 2014
Par Bill Emblom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Several of baseball's greatest stars played during the decade of the 1910s under conditions vastly different from the decades following. Author Mark Halfon takes us back to the rowdy days we often like to romanticize. Playing field conditions, inferior baseballs, bigotry among ballplayers, fixed ball games, violence between ballplayers involving post-game fist fights, and violence between umpires, players, and fans were some of the things that marred the game during this period of time.

The book is divided into three parts:

1. Deadball Era Highlights such as cheating during games in which runners would cut corners circling the bases, the "small ball" game, and rowdy behavior by players, umpires, and fans.

2. Deadball Era Standouts with chapters devoted to John McGraw, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, and the 1908 playoff game between the Giants and Cubs at the Polo Grounds.

3. Beyond the Deadball Era which reviews the Black Sox scandals (plural) in which the author questions the tail end of the 1920 season as well. Author Halfon gives his point of view regarding the myth of Babe Ruth and Judge Landis "saving" baseball following the infamy of 1919.

A few photos are included at the end of the book. I enjoyed the book but the decade of the 1910s aptly illustrated that the game of baseball had a lot of growing up to do and much of the nostalgia we associate with it actually left a lot to be desired.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Halfon Hits A Grand Slam..... 16 février 2014
Par Bob C. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is a must read for all baseball fans--really all sports fans--as it will entertain and educate in an engaging manner. Baseball is a sport made up of characters and author Halfon brings them to life...it also helps place the current state of baseball in a historical context. This book reminded me why I love the game and renewed my enthusiasm for it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must-read 13 février 2014
Par Steven Richman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is a beautifully written totally engaging account of baseball's most colorful period. A must-read for baseball fans but fascinating for anyone with even a passing interest in the sport.
