The New Yorker Book of Baseball Cartoons (Hardcover)
From the Publisher:
The "national pastime" engages (and sometimes enrages) fans and fanatics across America and around the world. Many of The New Yorker's best cartoonists, an esteemed and talented lot, have experienced our passion for this great game. These 100 drawings give hilarious proof of that.
An unforgettable, all-star lineup of cartoonists from A (Charles Addams) to Z (Jack Ziegler) are all on deck, making the collection a grand slam!
In cartoons spanning eight decades, the artists have captured the emotional essence of the game?kids playing pickup and beleaguered major leaguers; fans at the ballpark or glued to the TV; zealous players to zany managers; and yes, even that necessary evil, the umpires.
