Overview

With an all-star lineup of cartoonists on deck, The New Yorker Book of Baseball Cartoons captures the national pastime in all its heart-wrenching, uplifting glory.

This collection of baseball cartoons, which ranges from armchair obsessives to zany managers and beleaguered players, was culled from the pages of The New Yorker by the magazine's cartoon editor, Robert Mankoff, and features an introduction by the cartoonist Michael Crawford.

With contributions by the M.V.P.s of the magazine's more than eight-decade history, from Charles Addams to Jack Ziegler, The New Yorker Book of Baseball Cartoons is a hilarious testament to the passion and the pain of the game.

From the Publisher
“Clever, insightful and on target in depicting the game, the players, and the fans. Funny, too, of course.”

Reader’s Digest

“There are plenty of tears in baseball . . . thank godness the game has some humor to see us through the low points. If you like baseball, you’ll smile as you flip through the pages of The New Yorker Book of Baseball Cartoons.

Meet the Author

Robert Mankoff is a cartoon “player-manager” at The New Yorker, where he is cartoon editor and a frequent contributor. He is also founder and president of The Cartoon Bank, perhaps making him a “commissioner” of sorts, as well. He is the editor of numerous other cartoon collections, including The New Yorker Book of Golf Cartoons.

Michael Crawford, coeditor of this collection and staff artist at The New Yorker, has been contributing cartoons and illustrations since 1983. A dedicated baseball fan, he swears he has a better ERA for the company softball team than “Beanball Bob Mankoff.”
