Rate this:
In Once Upon a Game, Alan Schwarz, author of the critically acclaimed The Numbers Game, assembles a one-of-a-kind volume of first-person recollections about baseball from some of the game's all-time legends and its most famous fans. Ernie Banks recalls the moment he coined the phrase "Let's play two!"; Mike Piazza recounts his backyard batting lesson with Ted Williams; Cal Ripken Jr. tells of his first call-up to the major leagues; Roger Clemens reminisces about the night of his first twenty-strikeout masterpiece -- after almost missing the game; and George H. W. Bush reflects on his brief meeting with the one and only Babe Ruth. With intimacy and insight, dozens of the game's greatest players and lifetime fans remember their finest baseball moments on and off the field.

Lavishly illustrated and handsomely designed, Once Upon a Game is the perfect gift for any baseball fan.
