A Recommended Book Released Today..."THE FIRST FALL CLASSIC."
Yes, today, Tuesday October 6, 2009, marks the release of a very special book about our baseball history. It's called "THE FIRST FALL CLASSIC" and is available at Amazon dot com and all the usual booksellers as soon as they open. Amazon already has it listed and you can click on the title of this very post to be directed to the order page. Now, about the book.
The year was 1912, the month was October, a scant six months after THE TITANIC had too quickly sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. The teams were the New York Giants and the Boston Red Sox and they were to play an eight (!) game World Series. THE FIRST FALL CLASSIC chronicles the momentous battle between those two teams. As the cover of Mike Vaccaro's book says, "The Red Sox, The Giants, and the cast of players, pugs and politicos who reinvented the World Series." Quite simply, you will love it. Published by Doubleday, it is available NOW. Simply click on this post's title to be zapped to the Amazon order page or look for it at your local bookseller. I heartily recommend it. Click away! PLAY BALL!!
