Praise
"An intelligently selected and diverse collection...."
"For the hardened fan, aged in pine tar and old newsprint, the best way to review this collection might just be to list the table of contents and jump out of the way. Many entries will be familiar, and several others will sound intriguing: Early game reporting from Damon Runyon? A baseball think piece by Robert Frost? 'Take me out to the bookstore.'"
"BASEBALL: A LITERARY ANTHOLOGY...is a worthy endeavor....editor Davidoff...does sprinkle some inspired picks among the chestnuts...."
