THE SECOND FIRESIDE BOOK OF BASEBALL

.... and the bases are again loaded- with run-producing talent: from professional players like Ted Williams to Joe Di Maggio and Whitey Ford, to newspapermen- Bill Corum and Jimmy Cannon and the staff of the New York Times, to some of their more literary associates, Marianne Moore and Jacques Barzun and Kenneth Patchen. There are close to 100 pieces which do not duplicate any of those in the first collection (only the aims- and presumably results- as well as the format bear any similarity); excerpts from novels (Zane Grey, Mark Harris, Bernard Malamud); short stories; poetry; humor; anecdotes; as well as spot coverage of particular triumphs and defeats. An abundant anthology-- you will have no trouble in finding home plate.
