One of the best perks of authoring a long-standing and popular blog is that, each season, I receive several review copies of baseball books. For a baseball book junkie like me, this is just like manna from heaven.
And, today, I received a package of books from Dover Publications which included the following:
- This Side of Cooperstown: An Oral History of Major League Baseball in the 1950s – by Larry Moffi (originally published in 1996, to be reissued in March 2010)
- My Twenty Years in Baseball – by Ty Cobb (originally published in 1925, reissued in June 2009)
- Even the Browns: Baseball During World War II – by William B. Mead (originally published in 1978, reissued in February 2010)
- My 66 Years in the Big Leagues – by Connie Mack (originally published in 1950, reissued in April 2009)
They each look good – fun and informative portals leading into baseball’s past. What’s not to love about that? If you enjoy baseball history and books covering it as much as me, you’ll want to check these out.
