On the field, off the field, and off the record.
Baseball-it's America's pastime, and a yearly rite of passage for the millions of eager fans who wait for the boys of summer to take the field, enter the batter's box, and wind up for the first pitch. Kevin Nelson has gathered a collection of personal anecdotes and true stories from some of the most inspiring, humorous, exciting, and poignant moments in baseball, as told by the players themselves. From the golden age of the game to the modern era of inter-league play and wild-card playoffs, from the diamond, the dugout, and down on the farm, this compilation reveals baseball as it really is-and is a must-have for any fan of the game. A bonus CD includes stories not in the book.
A panel discussion by baseball greats and hall-of-famers, telling stories about the game they love, led by Hall of Fame announcer Bob Wolff.
