Product Overview

"Five Seasons" covers the baseball seasons from 1972 through 1976, described as the "most significant half decade in the history of the game." The era was notable for the remarkable individual feats of Hank Aaron, Lou Brock, and Nolan Ryan, among others. It also presented one of the best World Series of all time (1975), including still the greatest World Series game ever played (Game Six).

Along with visiting other games and campaigns, Roger Angell meets a trio of Tigers-obsessed fans, goes to a game with a departing old-style owner, watches high-school ball in Kentucky with a famous scout, and explores the sad and astounding mystery of Steve Blass''s vanished control. Angell''s "Five Seasons" is a gem and a gift for baseball lovers of all ages.

Author Info
Roger Angell
A 1942 graduate of Harvard, Angell worked for several magazines in the '40s and '50s before becoming a contributor to "The New Yorker", where he has had a long career, eventually becoming a fiction editor. His lyrical, clear-eyed essays on baseball have won him many devotees and a reputation as one of the country's most gifted sportswriters. His year-end holiday poem, in which he rhymes an incredible assortment of notables from the year just past, has become something of a tradition at "The New Yorker".
