"Neal D. Bogosian has written a wonderful little baseball novel set n 1909."

-- Bill Reynolds, The Providence Journal

"A delightful trip back to a simpler time, when baseball was still a innocent game."

-- Dennis Purdy, Author of The Team By Team Encyclopedia of Major League Baseball, Baseball on the Brain, and Kiss 'Em Goodbye

Before Babe Ruth, there was Chip Doolin! Set in 1909, The Adventures of Chip Doolin are the improbable and sometimes humorous tales of a farm boy from Somewhere, Virginia, who has few life tools and an abundance of raw talent, and who becomes the starting first baseman for the 1909 Detroit Tigers. It soon becomes apparent that the fate of Chip Doolin is a blessed one - heroics and home runs are part of his destiny. The stories chronicle Chip's subsequent adventures on and off the baseball diamond, including his courtship with "Eleanor Ferris, the blue-eyed daughter of Mr. Ferris, whom Chip had fancied ever since he knew about the bond between a man and a woman." Chip's follies are often amongst some of baseball's most prominent and colorful luminaries including Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, Walter Johnson, Nap Lajoie, Tris Speaker, Rube Waddell and Hughie Jennings, with cameo appearances from the likes of famed boxer John L. Sullivan, President Willam Howard Taft, and famed writer, Ring Lardner. The stories are sure to warm the nostalgic hearts of baseball fans young and old.

** Some of the content in The Adventures of Chip Doolin, was originally published in the national publication, Vintage and Classic Baseball Collector Magazine, as an ongoing series.
