Product description

Here's what former Chicago White Sox owner Bill Veeck had to say about baseball: "This is a game to be savored, not gulped. There's time to discuss everything between pitches or between innings." That's just one of the thousands of quotes gathered in this gigantic collection, and they include some of the wisest, wittiest comments made on America's national pastime. Edited by Wayne Stewart, a sports writer with almost 30 years of experience and 20 books to his name, and with a Foreword by Roger Kahn, who wrote the seminal book on baseball, The Boys of Summer, this anthology includes observations from players, managers, owners, writers, fans, and more. Among the greats whose thoughts are here to savor: Hank Aaron, Satchel Paige, Babe Ruth, Sandy Koufax, Willie Mays, Derek Jeter, Don Zimmer, Roger Angell, Red Barber, George Will, and countless others. This is a great gift book for any baseball fan!
