9780030122361: No Cheering In the Press Box

Holt, Reinhart and Winston [Published date: 1974]. Hard cover, 287 pp.] [From front jacket flap] In the years between the two world wars, American sports experienced what has come to be known as its Golden Age. The extraordinary accomplishments and colorful myths of its heroes were celebrated, in those days before television, by a class of journalists as remarkable in their profession as the athletes themselves-men whose talents, authority, and appreciation of life made them the bellwether of a flourishing press. The recollections of eighteen of those surviving sportswriters, their memories both personal and professional, are set down in No Cheering in the Press Box. Dan Daniel, John Kieran, Marshall Hunt, Richards Vidmer, John R. Tunis, Shirley Povich, Jimmy Cannon, Red Smith, Paul Gallico-these were some of the notable writers of that time whose acute and pungent recall gives this hook its unique readability. And in the contributions of the lesser-known reporters, we are given penetrating views of the inner life of big-time athletics and city newspapering when both were at their zenith. With the honesty, eloquence and vitality of its contributors, and the sensitive editing of Jerome Hokzmail. No Cheering in he Press Box stands as a landmark of American oral history.
