Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Baseball was different in earlier days—tougher, rawer, more intimate—when giants like Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb ran the bases. In the monumental classic The Glory of Their Times, the golden era of our national pastime comes alive through the vibrant words of those who played and lived the game.

Synopsis:

Great news for baseball fans--here is Lawrence Ritter's remarkable and universally hailed classic, now available in trade paperback. This is the enlarged edition, with 120 fantastic and rare photographs, of the 1966 original. In the words of 26 players, it describes what it was like to play major league baseball at the turn of the century and in the decades shortly thereafter.

The Cybrarian, March 24, 2011 (view all comments by The Cybrarian)
What makes this book unique amongst books of its sort is that the points of view of the various commentators are so individual and subjective. Many of the interviewees discuss the same person, team, or aspect of the game, yet come to very different conclusions. I found that this brought an immediacy to the book, as if those days were still alive and the games and individual rivalries were still a part of current events. Kudos to Mr. Ritter for capturing so many of these voices before they were all gone.
