From 1985 to 1992, Bruce Nash and Allan Zullo authored “The Baseball Hall of Shame” series which were a collection of baseball “goofs and gaffes” tales from Major League Baseball history. If you’ve ever read any of these books, you know that they’re full of fun stuff for baseball fans.
After a 20 year break in the series, Nash and Zullo are back and have released The Baseball Hall of Shame: The Best of Blooperstown. This new offering covers the zany, goofy, and wacky things in baseball from 1885 through 2011.
What I like most about this collection is that the authors aim to share the fun and true little known stories over the widely known ones.
Inauspicious debuts, wacky plate appearances, fielding fiascoes, practical jokes, post-season screw-ups, nutty habits and idiosyncrasies, hothead meltdowns, and undignified ballpark promotions are just some of the things that you’ll find covered with this book.
There’s something for every baseball fan in The Baseball Hall of Shame: The Best of Blooperstown.
