“A rich concoction of narrative, essays, and photos [that] dazzles the eye . . . In so many ways you are reminded that rooting for baseball is like breathing.” —Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times
“Stirring and reflective . . . A beautiful book that stands on its own in any league.” —David E. Jones, Chicago Tribune
“Glorious nuggets are set amid the clear, warm narrative and hundreds of classic images . . . Highest marks for browseability, but the true reward comes from the longer essays by folks still smitten by the game.” —Jerry Shriver, USA Today
