From the Publisher"Everything you wanted to know about the home run is in this book. . . .from charts to anecdotes, history to histrionics."
"David Vincent hit it out of the park with Home Run."
". . . .delves into the long history of the home run with great detail and color."
"I suggest that you wear your glove and pay attention while reading this book. Never have more home runs flown off the printed page. David Vincent has chronicled America's long and giddy obsession with the long ball, delivering a fusillade of dingers, taters, circuit clouts, and four-ply wallops. Nice work."
"In the history of American sports, there is nothing as sacred as the home run. It was that way a century ago, and it will be that way a century from now. Take a trip back, back, back with David Vincent as he visits the legend of the long ball."
"David Vincent knows more about home runs than any person has a right to know."
“When you hit a home run, it’s like no other feeling in the game. Everything becomes slow motion, and for those 15–20 seconds from the time you make contact until you touch home plate it really feels like things come to a standstill. The feeling never gets old—obviously some home runs are more significant than others, but each one is almost as exciting as the first one.”
"David Vincent [is] the guru of home runs."
