Frommer details classic tales of the connection players had to their communities...New York City Baseball The Golden Age is the quintessential collection of baseball information for fans of the era and new fans alike. Around Citi PRAISE FOR A PREVIOUS EDITION No red-blooded baseball fan will want to be without it ... a compulsively fascinating book. -- Alden Whitman Newsday PRAISE FOR A PREVIOUS EDITION A good history of the time and the particulars... Everyone is here: DiMaggio in pain, killing the Red Sox, Lavagetto ruining Beven's no-hitter; Thompson and Branca... It was a helluva ten years we had for ourselves... It's good to find New York City Baseball to re-create a happier era. The New York Times Book Review PRAISE FOR A PREVIOUS EDITION An excellent book that brings back the humanness of the Dodgers, the Giants, and the Yankees. We shall not have such an era again except in such loving books as this one. -- Red Barber PRAISE FOR A PREVIOUS EDITION A wonderfully written, evocative book. -- Roger Kahn As one who remembers that era well, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Harvey Frommer's account of it." -- Robert Creamer, Former Editor, Sports Illustrated PRAISE FOR A PREVIOUS EDITION Memory after memory, page after page. I enjoyed it very much. -- Peter Golenbock, author of Landry's Boys and The Bronx Zoo
