Product Description:

Baseball was different in earlier days tougher, rawer, more intimate when giants like Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb ran the bases. In the monumental classic The Glory of Their Times, the golden era of our national pastime comes alive through the vibrant words of those who played and lived the game.

Review:

"Almost perfect . . . a vivid, gentle, and humorous narrative, accompanied by marvelous photographs."-- Roger Angell, "The New Yorker"Quite simply the best sports book in recent memory."-- Wilfrid Sheed, "The New York Times Book Review""The Glory of Their Times will be around as long as baseball."-- Nelson Algren"I could happily reread every summer for the rest of my life that greatest of all baseball books, "The Glory of Their Times."-- Stephen Jay Gould, "The New York Times Book Review"Warm, happy, exciting . . . It has been a long time since I enjoyed a book as much as I enjoyed "The Glory of Their Times. . . The day after I finished it I started reading it all over again."-- Ted Williams"Easily the best baseball book ever produced by anyone."-- "Cleveland Plain Dealer"There's not a dull moment in the whole book."-- "The Raleigh (N.C.) News and Observer" . . . It is a very readable, enjoyable chronicle of the six or seven decades of the game that preceded what is often referred to as the modern era. It can easily be enjoyed by anyone who likes good writing, interesting characters and has just a passing knowledge of the game."-- Pete Reynolds, "The Chicago Star"The single best baseball book of all time."-- Red Barber
