During the baseball strike of 1994, Seth Swirsky was missing the sport he'd loved all his life. So he began writing to ballplayers, managers, umpires, and even some fans, asking them about their most memorable baseball moments. Soon he realized that this correspondence would make a great book for baseball fans like himself who yearn for a human connection with their favorite players. Swirsky has gathered nearly one hundred of these delightful letters into this unprecedented collection of baseball memories. Handwritten replies to Swirsky's baseball-savvy questions are included from such greats as Cal Ripken, Jr., Bob Feller, Whitey Ford, Ferguson Jenkins, Monte Irvin, Al Kaline, Harmon Killebrew, Fred Lynn, Bobby Richardson, Brooks Robinson, Al Rosen, Joe Rudi, and dozens of others. Also included are nearly seventy-five vintage photographs along with capsule biographies of each correspondent. Baseball Letters is an affectionate blend of heartwarming nostalgia and baseball lore - one fan's very special gift to everyone who loves our national pastime.
