Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
First-time author Stewart has compiled various talesmany of them from present-day playersthat are full of droll humor. Chapters include odd baseball plays and trick plays, quotes of the game, and more. If you have to choose between Lyons and Stewart, give the nod to Lyons first, since it is better organized.
