More great baseball writing from Roger Angell - he doesnt produce anything less. I particularly enjoy going back to the "period" reports, as many of the issues raised, and the author's thoughts on them, have now played out (and mostly not in a good way).
Yet Mr Angell's writing always delivers the beauty and the thrill of baseball, and the joy in maturing along with the great players over the years.
I recommend all of the author's baseball books for a fan interested in its history - not a view from 10000 feet, but one from the trenches.
