Along with visiting other games and campaigns, Roger Angell meets a trio of Tigers-obsessed fans, goes to a game with a departing old-style owner, watches high-school ball in Kentucky with a famous scout, and explores the sad and astounding mystery of Steve Blass's vanished control. Angell's "Five Seasons" is a gem and a gift for baseball lovers of all ages.
Covers the baseball seasons from 1972 through 1976, described as the "most significant half decade in the history of the game."
Roger Angell is a writer and fiction editor with the New Yorker. His works include The Summer Game (available in a Bison Books edition), Late Innings, and Game Time.
"A book for people who miss good writing, who miss clarity, lucidity, style and passion. It's a book for all seasons."--New York Times Book Review "No one writes better about baseball."--Boston Globe "Roger Angell is our best writer on baseball."--Newsweek "Angell's passion for baseball is enough to convert the heathen."--Time
