In addition to seven classic books on baseball, which include The Summer Game (1972), Five Seasons (1977), and Season Ticket (1988), he has written works of fiction, humor, and a memoir, Let Me Finish (2006).

This is a trip through an era that, frankly, had less effect on me then, than any other period from 1960 until present day. Yet, after racing through Angell's wonderful prose, I found myself nostalgic still.

His discussion with Reggie Jackson discussing his coming to terms with Father Time found in me a sympathy that I never before felt for the hall-of-gamer.

I also delighted in reading of Steve Garvey, Mr. Clean is what we called him in L.A., in the playoffs. I had forgotten that Garvey had left the Dodgers.

Roger Angell's is, for me, the Vin Scully of Baseball Writing. By that, I mean, he has mastered the art of story telling while reporting also the play-by-play events transporting during the game.

This book is especially written for the fan, rather than the aspiring player. I wish more writers would emulate his style. Geck, I wish more writers of history, in general, would take notes on writing the way this guy does it.

Like your own personal field of dreams. I read it when it came out in 88 and got the kindle version when it came out. Feel like Earl Weaver is still managing and the 80s baseball heroes are still at it playing the game. So many great story lines he follows as he weaves his way through the 1980s. Only downside is the translation of the original book to digital format. So many spelling errors and names that get mangled. It took me a few minutes to realize that the hot new catcher in Pittsburgh was Tony Pena and not Tony Pefia. You would think they might proofread the kindle versions first but I guess it's too much trouble.
Roger Angell is going into the Baseball Hall of Fame this year. Well deserved for him.

This is one of a number of Roger Angell books that have sat on my bookshelf for years waiting for me to read them a second time. When I saw that they came out for the Kindle, I bought them all and have begun re-reading them, now some 20 and 30 years later. What a treasure chest of memories for the true baseball fan! Angell's turn of phrase and historical and literary references enrich the telling of the tales. It is fascinating to see in hindsight whether Angell's predictions, if they can be called that, about the future of this or that player did or did not come to pass. Those of us with baseball memories that go back as far as Angell's will delight in reliving the thrilling days of yesteryear.

Interesting book. I liked the way the author was able to interview the players and get their concept of the game.
