From the Back Cover:

No matter if it's the dead of winter or the middle of the summer, it's always baseball season for Dave Kindred, the award-winning columnist for The Sporting News.

Glove Stories is a collection of his commentaries that have appeared in The Sporting News since 1990. From spring training to the World Series. From sandlot baseball to the major leagues. From kids playing the game to Hall of Famers, Glove Stories is a collection from Dave's heart.

Warm to his stories of watching kids play ball on a county baseball diamond, to his stories of his baseball glove, of his stories about meeting the immortal Pete Gray. Recount the drama and excitement of the World Series in his commentary from the Fall Classic, from 1991 to 2001. Laugh at his stories of his introduction of sportswriting. Reflect on his stories of baseball and September 11, on his stories of the challenges of integrating the game, on his memorials to some of the game's greatest players.

You'll find, too, it's always baseball season.
