The author has interviewed nearly 100 former Major League Baseball players about their experiences in the era that purists consider to be the Golden Age of Baseball. For longtime fans who are enamored of baseball history and tradition, this book should have special appeal. Each entry is prefaced by a concise player profile, leading into an anecdote that is written entirely in the player's own words. Each tale is about 150 words in length, making for a light and breezy trip through baseball legend and lore. Among the players interviewed are Ralph Kiner, Bobby Thomson, Bill Virdon, Jerry Coleman, and Tim McCarver. Almost half of the nearly 100 players were named to at least one All-Star team. Tales from Baseball's Golden Age promises to be a book that readers won't want to put down.
