About this Item: Grove Pr., 2003. Hardcover. Dust Jacket Included. First Edition. SIGNED in person, spine ends bumped, otherwise a near fine book and dustjacket. The scene is Havana, Cuba, in the fall of 1958. Mickey Mantle's New York Yankees are playing the Milwaukee Braves. Bets are being made right and left in all kinds of joints. Everyone is zeroed in on the series, including criminal biggie Mariano "Ox" Contreras. The Joe Bonanno crime family had carefully picked him to pull off a huge, more daring yet heist in Cuba's history---the one that will throw a giant monkey-wrench into Meyer Lansky's hotel and gambling empire. Contreras sets up a super team of ex-cons, with the help of Lebanese hustler/now tycoon, Elias Naguib. As the series gets ready to end, Contreras and his motley team wait for the final out, when the overflowing coffers of Lansky's casino are ripe for harvest. If they can make this important take, their futures will be set. Entertaining. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 6003

About this Item: Hyperion, New York, 1997. Hardcover. Condition: vg. First edition, first printing. Quarto (9 1/2 x 6 1/2"). XI, [3], 290pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over half blue cloth and blue paper covered boards, with silver lettering to spine. Title page inscribed and signed by the author.In this book, "acclaimed baseball writer Roger Kahn gives us a memoir of his Brooklyn childhood, a recollection of a life in journalism, and a record of personal acquaintance with the greatest ballplayers of several eras. His father had a passion for the Dodgers; his mother's passion was for poetry. Somehow, young Roger managed to blend both loves in a career that encompassed writing about sports for the 'New York Herald Tribune,' 'Sports Illustrated,' the 'Saturday Evening Post,' 'Esquire,' and 'Time.' Kahn recalls the great personalities of a golden era - Leo Durocher, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Jackie Robinson, Red Smith, Dick Young, and many more - and recollects the wittiest lines from forty years in dugouts, press boxes, and newsrooms. Often hilarious, always precise about action on the field and off, Memories of Summer is an enduring classic about how baseball met literature to the benefit of both." (From the Publishers).Pages slightly age-toned. Dust-jacket, binding and interior in overall very good condition. Seller Inventory # 41840

About this Item: Harper, New York, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Signed, date and dedicated by Rosen on the first title page. Tight and clean with no markings other then the dedication. The history of the Irish in baseball is much richer than anyone realizes. From early discrimination to later domination, from Mike Kelly, a society star in the 1880s, to the managerial fame of Connie Mack (ne McGillicuddy), early Irish players and managers helped shape the game of baseball in every way. From the first curveball to the first players unions, Irishmen took America s national pastime and made it their own, turning it into the glorious game we know today, as more recent players have kept alive the Irish tradition of setting records. A wild, fun, fact-filled celebration of the Irish in baseball, The Emerald Diamond intersperses interviews with current players with tales of such players as Dan Brouthers, who at 6 2 and well over 200 pounds, was the game s home-run king until Babe Ruth came along; and includes lively anecdotes about such colorfully nicknamed ballplayers as Tony the Count Mullane, Mike King Kelly, James Pud Galvin, Hugh One-Arm Daily, Frank Silk O Loughlin, and Iron Man Joe McGinnity. Just a few of the great Irish athletes featured as well are Mickey Cochrane (for whom Mickey Mantle was named); Charles Comiskey; Ed Walsh, the last pitcher to win 40 games in a single season; and Ed Delahanty, whose prodigious life and mysterious death continue to be a source of intrigue. With decade-by-decade profiles of exciting Irish figures on the field and off, The Emerald Diamond also offers important discussion on cultural and political themes relevant to their times. Shipping is USPS with Delivery Confirmation for US Delivery and USPS First Class or Priority International for Foreign shipments; shipped Boxed in recycled cardboard for a clean environment, with USPS Confirmation or Customs slip with no additional cost.

About this Item: Taylor Publishing, Dallas, Texas, U.S.A., 2004. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition.. Sigened by author on half title page. From Publishers Weekly More than 30 years ago, Roger Kahn's bittersweet remembrance of his 1950s Brooklyn Dodgers heroes, The Boys of Summer, spawned an entire genre of sentimental, where-are-they-now baseball books. Jensen’s contribution to the lot updates readers on 56 men who wore the legendary pinstriped uniform of the Bronx Bombers. Every baseball fan knows about Mickey Mantle's battle with alcohol, Yogi Berra's feud and reconciliation with George Steinbrenner and the long campaign to get Phil Rizzuto enshrined in the Hall of Fame. Jensen—who heckled Yankees megastars such as Reggie Jackson as a boy growing up in Texas—wisely avoids such well-worn turf, and instead focuses on the bench-warmers and journeymen who filled out the rosters of the good Yankee squads and the mediocrities who populated the bad ones. Horace Clarke, Ron Davis, Ed Figueroa, Ray Fontenot, Xavier Hernandez, Jimmy Jones, Roger Repoz and Thad Tillotson are hardly household names, but they all will be familiar to dedicated fans; and with such an obscure cast of characters, there are enough oddball facts in Jensen's pages to fill many a rain delay and fuel endless barroom conversations. Who knew, for instance, that former rightfielder Jesse Barfield is a professional draftsman and furniture designer who holds 28 U.S. patents? Or that ex-infielder Andre Robertson is a supervisor in a chemical plant? There are poignant moments, too, as players discuss teammates who are no longer around. Jensen’s prose isn’t quite up to snuff however; chapters are thick with cliches about heroism and the tribulations of life after the game. He also quotes ex-players at length, whether they have something interesting to say anything or not. Still, if you're a true Yankees geek—and there are plenty out there—you will feast on the information in this Who's Who of half-remembered (and in some cases best-forgotten) players.

About this Item: Doubleday, 2006. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Signed by Author on title page. Square corners. Straight, secure spine. In the town of Ada, Oklahoma, Ron Williamson was going to be the next Mickey Mantle. But on his way to the Big Leagues, Ron stumbled, his dreams broken by drinking, drugs, and women. Then, on a winter night in 1982, not far from Ron¿s home, a young cocktail waitress named Debra Sue Carter was savagely murdered. The investigation led nowhere. Until, on the flimsiest evidence, it led to Ron Williamson. The washed-up small-town hero was charged, tried, and sentenced to death¿in a trial littered with lying witnesses and tainted evidence that would shatter a man¿s already broken life, and let a true killer go free.

About this Item: Sports Publishing, LLC, Champaign, IL, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very good. Presumed First Edition, First printing. xii, 257, [3], pages. Illustrations. Index. DJ has slight wear and soiling. Autographed Copy sticker on front of DJ. Signed by author on the title page. Author Stephen Borelli, who, like his father and grandfather, attentively followed Allen's on-air accounts, traces the announcer from tiny towns in Alabama to the glares of Yankee Stadium and the Rose Bowl. Stephen Borelli lives in the Washington, D.C., area, where he graduated from Georgetown University and is now an assistant news director for a USA TODAY media outlet. He has covered all levels of baseball as well as numerous other sports and has written for USA TODAY, The Washington Post, Harvard University's Nieman Reports and TENNIS Magazine. He learned baseball from watching Mel Allen on This Week in Baseball and going to New York Yankees games. He began his career in the South, working for the Pensacola (Florida) News Journal, The Commercial Appeal in Memphis, and as a sportswriter in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. Mel Allen (born Melvin Allen Israel; February 14, 1913 - June 16, 1996)[1] was an American sportscaster, best known for his long tenure as the primary play-by-play announcer for the New York Yankees. During the peak of his career in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, Allen was arguably the most prominent member of his profession, his voice familiar to millions. Years after his death, he is still promoted as having been "The Voice of the Yankees." In his later years, he gained a second professional life as the first host of This Week in Baseball. In perhaps the most notable moment of his distinguished career, Allen called Game 7 of the 1960 World Series, in which Bill Mazeroski hit a walk-off home run to win the fall classic for the Pittsburgh Pirates. This is the only walk-off home run ever to occur in a Game 7 of a World Series. Allen was used as a color commentator for CBS's radio broadcast of the 1938 World Series. In June 1939, Garnett Marks, McDonald's partner on Yankee broadcasts, twice mispronounced Ivory Soap, the Yankees' sponsor at the time, as "Ovary Soap." He was fired, and Allen was tapped to replace him. Allen became the Yankees' and Giants' lead announcer, doing double duty for both teams because only their home games were broadcast at that time. He periodically recounted an anecdote that occurred during his first full season (1940) as Yankee play-by-play man. Hall of Fame first baseman Lou Gehrig had been forced to retire the year before after having been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a fatal illness. Speaking with Allen in the Yankee dugout, Gehrig told him "Mel, I never got a chance to listen to your games before because I was playing every day. But I want you to know they're the only thing that keeps me going." Allen broke down in tears after Gehrig departed. Allen's stint with the Yankees and Giants was interrupted in 1941, when no sponsor could be found and both teams went off the air, but the broadcasts resumed in 1942. Allen was the voice of both the Yankees and the Giants until 1943, when he entered the United States Army during World War II, broadcasting on The Army Hour and Armed Forces Radio. After the war, Allen called Yankee games exclusively. By this time, road games were added to the broadcast schedule. Before long Allen and the Yankees were fused in the public consciousness, an association strengthened by the team's frequent World Series appearances. Allen eventually called 22 World Series on radio or television, including all but one in the 17-year stretch between 1947 and 1963. He also called 24 All-Star Games. . His likeness was also licensed by Standard Comics for a two-issue "Mel Allen's Sports Comics" series between 1949 and 1950. Curt Gowdy credited Mel Allen's mentoring as a big factor in his own success as a broadcaster, and became the voice of the Boston Red Sox from 1951 to 1965. Red Barber, the former Brooklyn Dodgers announcer who had served as Allen's crosstown rival and frequent World Series broadcast p. Seller Inventory # 73265
