Most baseball fans can list the game's greatest players, but how many are familiar with baseball's greatest writers? Since baseball's inception, an abundance of superb writers have heightened our appreciation of the game. By means of the newspaper column, magazine article, biography, history, reference book, poem, short story, novel, and play, these authors have inflamed the hearts and imaginations of countless readers. An ode to the baseball writer, "Baseball's Greatest Writers" attempts to identify the nine greatest baseball writers of all time and to acknowledge the excellence of twenty-seven more. "Baseball's Greatest Writers" features brief biographies, writing samples, stylistic analyses, critical commentaries, and recommended readings of thirty-six writers. In the process, the following questions are answered: What qualities secure a writer's acclaim among readers and fellow writers? How can the reader's understanding and love for the game be elevated by a baseball writer? And, how has the writer's style affected other authors, journalists, and editors?
