About this title

Synopsis:

In his historical narrative, "Roger Maris and a Cast of Hundreds", Gregory Rom describes the events in Major League Baseball (MLB) in the years 1957 through 1968. This was a simpler time when there were fewer teams playing in MLB. The American and National League pennant pursuits seemed to unfold with more apparent drama over the course of the summer. In his unique approach, Rom reports on individual games of the leading teams in each pennant race. In those years, the League pennant pursuits led directly to the World Series. Rom summarizes the key games and player performances of each World Series of the twelve-year period. In the midst of his game-by-game narrative, Rom skillfully interweaves background information to provide a historical baseball context about the most successful players of the era, which he calls interludes, and even references important historical events in the world, which took place on the same days when some of the important games were played.

About the Author:

Gregory Rom is a 37-year resident of Maple Grove, MN. He was born in Fargo, ND and is a 1968 graduate of Moorhead High and later a graduate of Concordia College. The MLB career of Fargo's own Roger Maris spanned the twelve years from 1957 through 1968. In that time, Maris appeared in seven World Series with the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals. People in the Fargo-Moorhead area followed his outstanding baseball career on a daily basis and were greatly saddened by his death from cancer at the early age of 51. In his heart, Rom believes that the convergence in time of his twelve years in public school with the twelve-year baseball career of Roger Maris has in a spiritual way led him to write his narrative. By describing those baseball games from some fifty years ago, Rom hopes that readers of this narrative can imagine themselves attending them in a spiritual way.
