Another blast from the past book, but a charmer nonetheless. This is a sweet collection of short stories telling all about the history of the Hibernian clubs in Pittsburgh with lots of reflections on Forbes Field and Oakland by when. Guess I am just a sucker for memorabilia, but I really enjoyed this selection.
