Praise For Heroes of Baseball: The Men Who Made It America's Favorite Game…
"A thoroughly entertaining book that reveals stories I had never heard before -- about baseball and our country. A sneaky way to teach history."
-- Jim Bouton, former Yankees pitcher and author of Ball Four
"Robert Lipsyte is the very best at what he does: he writes about what's important while entertaining you all the way. No other sport has a history like baseball. This book is a marvel as the stars of the game come alive in words and rare photos. If you want to meet the men who have made America's Pastime great, here's the book for you."
-- Peter Golenbock, author of Red Sox Nation and Hank Aaron: Brave in Every Way
