Sit on the bench with your favorite players in this new collection of little-known anecdotes from baseball's greatest storytellers

Mike Shannon, the popular author of the acclaimed baseball classics Tales from the Dugout and Tales from the Ballpark, revisits the legendary dugouts of America to bring you this new collection of more than 100 true stories and never-before-told anecdotes, straight from the national pastime's most talented storytellers and spinners of yarn--and some of them play a good game of baseball, too.

From classic Hall-of-Famers to today's up-and-coming superstars, this memorable collection includes baseball players from the past and present such as Cal Ripken Jr., Willie Mays, Mark McGwire, Pete Rose, Sammy Sosa, and Ted Williams. The book even features fascinating off-the-field personalities, including famous fans, memorabilia collectors, and sportswriters.

Reading these delightful stories from the great and the almost great, you'll be charmed by Phillies sportscaster Richie Ashburn's creative way of earning himself free pizzas in the broadcasting booth, enchanted by the legend of how Ty Cobb's dentures ended up in the home of a suburban housewife, and tickled by the always comical Yogi Berra's take on the streaking fad of the 1970s.

For the stories behind the story, this hilarious and often heartwarming compilation is sure to entertain and inspire baseball fans of all ages.

Mike Shannon is the editor of Spitball: The Literary Baseball Magazine and the author ofnumerous baseball books, including Tales from the Dugout, Tales from the Ballpark, Diamond Classics, Baseball: The Writer's Game, and Everything Happens in Chillicothe. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.
