Tales from Baseballís Golden Age
Gene Fehler (ed). The decades of the 1940s & Ď50s are considered by many fans to be baseballís Golden Age. Stan Musial, Ted Williams, Hank Aaron, Satchel Paige, Mickey Mantle, Robin Roberts, Willie Mays, Jackie Robinson, Yogi Berra, Warren Spahn, Ernie Banks: the names still excite all those who saw them play. Here we return to the Ď40s & Ď50s through the words of 56 players from those years. They tell us how it was to play baseball before expansion & big money, artificial grass & domed stadiums, airplane travel, & the DH. We hear the voices of Hall of Famers & All-Stars blending with those of lesser-known players who sing praises for simply having been there to compete against & play with some of the greatest players the game has ever known. B&W photos.
