From the Back Cover:

From the olden days of flannel uniforms and metal spikes to those of retractable-domed stadiums and nine-figure player salaries; from the golden era of Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb to that of present-day sluggers like Mark McGwire and Ken Griffey, Jr., perhaps no single athletic pursuit has managed to capture the imagination and devotion of the sporting public as much as the game of baseball. And it is no wonder that some of our finest writers have weighed in on this rich and fascinating subject.

In The Greatest Baseball Stories Ever Told, editor Jeff Silverman collects some of the best writings, both fact and realistic fiction, that reflect the resonant history, tradition, agony and ecstasy of what has been affectionately dubbed our national pastime.

About the Author:

Jeff Silverman is the editor of several books, including At the Old Ballgame: Stories from Baseball's Golden Era and Classic Golf Stories: Twenty-Six Incredible Tales from the Links
