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.
