Overview

Another HOME RUN from the TWO GUYS In this book, Chandler and Hill take their game to a whole new level. This time they are assuming their favorite profession of all: baseball fans. Read along as they follow, dissect, critique, and enliven a whole major league season from different cities on opposite sides of the country.You'll chuckle and howl with them as they chronicle their teams' bizarre highs and lows. As in the first three books in this hilarious series, Chandler and Hill go off on wild tangents and trade many exchanges on subjects seemingly unrelated to baseball. But by the end of the book they convince you that baseball might just be the one thing in life that holds us all together.Chandler is a former sportswriter who has twenty books to his credit, and Hill is an award-winning advertising creative director and playwright. It also didn't hurt that these two guys have been close friends since the 1950s, and that they played on a Little League championship team together in 1955.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
I always wonder what the two guys will come up with as a primary topic for their books. And, while I have no appreciation for the intricacies of baseball, nor any understanding of its historical place in American culture, I loved this one. I had a great time going back and visiting Steve and Terry, two dear old pals whose correspondence with each other is fun, funny and just a joy to peek in on. I've found all the two guys books a joy to read, and this one is no exception.
Mike Devlin
Pretty amazing stuff, turning stream of consciousness and the comfort of inside jokes and familiarity into entertainment for others. But in a world where bloggers believe their internal voices are interesting enough to share, these guys actually pull it off. And with all due respect, FINALLY they hit upon a topic that I truly love! This is a great read start to finish, and confirms my belief that most if not all of the important lessons I learned in life, I learned through sports.
Richard Blake
In "Two Guys Read the Box Scores" Steve Chandler and Terrence N. Hill take a rollicking look at baseball and the way it used to be. The book is presented in a format of conversational exchanges and features a collection of anecdotes taken from the authors' experiences and their observations on everything from legends of the base ball greats to forgiveness as encouraged by the Zen masters. They feature highlights from the careers of some of their personal heroes, the superstars of baseball.
