Comments:

Bludworm
This is a wonderful book, nostalgic but still powerful. The author tape recorded interviews with many old-time baseball players in the mod 1960s. He essential transcribed the recordings and published them in this book. The result is a first person narrative by many players from the very late 1800s through the 1940s. In a later edition, a handful of new interviews was included. The result is very interesting and even riveting.

One way of addressing this is simply to note some of those interviewed--the greats and the not-so-great: Rube Marquard, Sam Crawford, Fred Snodgrass, Joe Wood, Babe Herman, Specs Toporcor, Goose Goslin, Hank Greenberg, and Paul Waner. Each gives his sense of their career, their times, and the game of baseball. Many of the comments are awfully insightful. The vignettes also provide a sense of what baseball was like in the very late 19th century and first half of the 20th century.

For baseball fans, this classic is still well worth reading. . . .

This is for the baseball connoisseur. I'm sure not everyone will enjoy listening to old men talk about the early days of baseball. Most people aren't interested in anything that happened more than ten years ago. But if you're interested in listening to stories of the very early years of baseball, then this is for you. Most of them are actually fascinating.

This book is a treasure. I first read it over 30 years ago and have had tons of joy reading it again now. Ritter tracked these old time players down in the age before Google and succeeded in getting the first hand testimony of many of the game's greats from the early 20th century. Back in an era when Baseball was the #1 sport, these players were the kings of America. Despite the fact that few people ever actually saw them play, these men were household names. Ritter tracked them down all over the country, sometimes taking years to find someone (i.e., Sam Crawford). What he produced is one of the first great works of oral history. The first hand accounts of the games, rivalries and playing conditions are vivid and concise. If you love baseball you will love this book.

All the hype about this book is true. It's the best book about baseball ever written. And, it's told by the players themselves, warts and all. It's an oral history of the early days of the game.
Honus Wagner talks about playing third base with a first baseman's glove. One coach talked about sending the batboy down to the saloon to fetch a player when it was his time to bat. The book itself isn't so much a history of baseball with loads of statistics, it's a book about the players- 22 of them.
Even if you don't like baseball, you will be fascinated by the stories of the men who played the game.
Jimmy Austin , "When I first came to the Big Leagues they didn't have clubhouses in most parks, especially not for the visiting team. We'd get into uniform at the hotel and ride out to the park in a bus drawn by four horses. We'd sit on the seats along the sides and ride, in uniform, to the park and back.
Kids running alongside as we went past, rotten tomatoes once in a while."
Rube Bressler on Ty Cobb. "His determination was fantastic. I never saw anybody like him. It was his base. It was his game. Everything was his. The most feared man in baseball."
Tommy Leach on the World Series of 1903. "That was probably the wildest ever played. The fans were part of the game in those days. They'd pour right out onto the field and argue with players and umpires. Was sort of hard to keep the game going sometimes, to say the least."

This is, quite simply, one of the top five sports books ever written. Even if you're not a hardcore baseball fan or a fan of history, you are sure to find this book wildly engaging. The stories abut the early years of baseball are fascinating in and of themselves, but the personal stories are wonderful as well. From farm boys to college kids to kids from immigrant ghettos, the players of yesteryear came from every walk of life, much as they do today. Baseball anecdotes aside, the stories about their lives before and after playing ball are well worth the read. I've read this book at least once a year for the last ten years, and I'll continue to do so. When my son (who is only 3) starts to read real books in a couple years, this is the first one I'll leave on his bed stand. It's simply, plainly, refreshingly an American classic. Buy it. You will not be disappointed.

For those of us who are interested in the history of baseball (me), this is required reading. I first became aware of the history of baseball and most of these players as a youngster while playing APBA Baseball (a board game) which emulated their on field accomplishments. This book does a great job of finding out just how much joy playing the game brought to these men. That is the single most endearing trait which is shared by them all, the love of the game of baseball. If you also love America's Pastime, you should read along. You will not be disappointed.
