The Bilko Athletic Club: The Story of the 1956 Los Angeles Angels by Gaylon H. White
The Bilko Athletic Club: The Story of the 1956 Los Angeles Angels

timcolb, February 11, 2014

If you're a baseball fanatic this book will soon hold a place of pride on your bookshelf right along side The Boys of Summer. But far being an expertly reported "inside baseball" account of one team in 1956, this new book is a love letter to both the national pasttime and the past time of a nation, brimming with the personalities, anecdotes, and plot twists that make it read like a mini-Michener novel. It's first rate storytelling, yes, but this book goes one unexpected step further, allowing us to feel and relate to the author's own boyhood discovery of what became a lifelong passion.
