The Old Ball Game from the Author: Frank Deford. In The Old Ball Game, Frank Deford, NPR sports commentator and Sports Illustrated journalist retells the story of an unusual friendship between two towering figures in baseball history. At the turn of the twentieth century, Christy Mathewson was one of baseball's first superstars. Over six feet tall, clean cut, and college educated, he didn't pitch on the Sabbath and rarely spoke an ill word about anyone. He also had one of the most devastating arms in all of baseball. New York Giants manager John McGraw, by contrast, was ferocious. The pugnacious tough guy was already a star infielder who, with the Baltimore Orioles, helped develop a new, scrappy style of baseball, with plays like the hit-and-run, the Baltimore chop, and the squeeze play. When McGraw joined the Giants in 1902, the Giants were coming off their worst season ever. Yet within three years, Mathewson clinched New York City's first World Series for McGraw's team by throwing three straight shutouts in only six days, an incredible feat that is invariably called the greatest World Series performance ever. Because of their wonderful odd-couple association, baseball had its first superstar, the Giants ascended into legend, and baseball as a national pastime bloomed.

The Farmers Game from the Author: David Vaught. Anyone who has watched the film Field of Dreams can’t help but be captivated by the lead character’s vision. He gives his struggling farming community a magical place where the smell of roasted peanuts gently wafts over the crowded grandstand on a warm summer evening just as the star pitcher takes the mound. Baseball, America’s game, has a dedicated following and a rich history. Fans obsess over comparative statistics and celebrate men who played for legendary teams during the "golden age" of the game. In The Farmers' Game, David Vaught examines the history and character of baseball through a series of essay-vignettes. He presents the sport as essentially rural, reflecting the nature of farm and small-town life. Vaught does not deny or devalue the lively stickball games played in the streets of Brooklyn, but he sees the history of the game and the rural United States as related and mutually revealing. His subjects include nineteenth-century Cooperstown, the playing fields of Texas and Minnesota, the rural communities of California, the great farmer-pitcher Bob Feller, and the notorious Gaylord Perry. Although—contrary to legend—Abner Doubleday did not invent baseball in a cow pasture in upstate New York, many fans enjoy the game for its nostalgic qualities. Vaught's deeply researched exploration of baseball's rural roots helps explain its enduring popularity.

More Family Lessons from the Author: Steven H. Propp. It’s been two years: the grandkids are growing, and there is a new addition to the family: “Ravishing Rhea”! Nana and Papa are now blessed to witness (and occasionally assist with) the growth and development of six grandkids: three boys, and three girls. But the world is also changing: there are new challenges, as families must cope with increased financial pressures, juggling work and school schedules, and even temporary separations, not to mention dealing with the normal difficulties experienced by young people as they are growing up. In addition to playing sports, video games, celebrating birthdays, participating in Spelling Bees, making movies, and doing homework, the kids keep Papa and Nana busy trying to answer questions such as, “What kind of pet should I get?”; “How long does the moon stay full?”; “Are all ladybugs girls?”; “How come we don’t get presents for all the Twelve Days of Christmas?” and of course, “Are vampires real?” Whether they’re walking to the park, building “special projects” for school, preparing for Halloween, or revising their Christmas lists for the sixth time, the kids both grow and learn, as well as help the adults around them to appreciate and celebrate the joy, wonder, and beauty of children?living in a new, and exciting world.
