Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few men in Chicago sports history have been beloved on both the North and South Sides of such a baseball-crazy town. Steve Stone is a fan favorite. Following his last game as Cubs announcer, long after all the players had left the field, nearly everyone left in the stadium looked up to the broadcast booth and chanted “Stoney! Stoney!” for several minutes. In Said in Stone, the Cy Young award-winning pitcher and perhaps future Hall of Fame broadcaster offers his unique slant on the game that has been his passion for nearly five decades. He starts by analyzing the game position by position, illustrating his points with personal experiences and players he's played with and covered. What he hasn't seen, his broadcast partner of 15 years, Harry Caray, probably had, and he shares plenty of funny stories about their years together in the booth as well. Finally he takes a serious look at how the game has changed and what the future holds for America's pastime.

Synopsis:

Few in Chicago sports history have been as beloved on both the North and South Sides of the baseball-crazy city as Steve Stone—a privilege that made no small contribution to the incredible stories shared in this fun baseball exploration led by the man himself.

He starts by analyzing the game position by position; illustrating his points with personal experiences and the players he has either played with or covered. What he hasn't seen, his broadcast partner of 15 years, Harry Caray, probably had, and he shares plenty of funny stories about their years together in the booth as well. Finally he takes a serious look at how the game has changed and what the future holds for America's pastime.
