Notes:Subtitle:Baseball from the Twenties to the Forties Told by the Men Who Played It

Short memoirs by (mostly) famous Major Leaguers from the 30s and 40s, including Charlie Gehringer, Lefty Grove, Bob Feller and Pete Reiser. Baseball was a smaller community then, and players stuck with the same teams longer — and there were a lot more beanball wars.

Review - Baseball When the Grass Was Real

For whatever reason, I wasn't really in the mood for a baseball book when I started reading, but it soon put me in the mood. The memoirs are relaxed and occasionally funny and very much made me wish I could have seen the game the way it was played then.
