The Story of Baseball in 100 Pictures

I wrote the text for a book called The Story of Baseball in 100 Pictures, which will be coming out in November. Below is an image taken in the spring, when the excellent team at Time Inc. Books (when there was such a thing) was in the stage of determining which 100 pictures were going to be telling baseball’s story. The page layouts in this photo that are hanging by one thumbtack (Ebbets Field, the Alou brothers) are the ones that were cut that day. This was a fun project; I received an early copy of the book in the mail the other day and read through it, and I thought, “Hey, this is pretty good.”

Always like it when it works out that way.
