Baseball and the Baby Boomer by Talmage Boston
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Tapping into the nostalgic era of feel-good baseball in the late 1940s and moving up to the Mitchell report, this collection documents the story of baseball as seen through the eyes and experiences of the post-war generation. From daytime games heard on the radio to players testifying before Congress on steroid usage, baseball has undergone a major transformation over the past 60 years. This chronicling of such vast changes features stories involving famed players such as Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Roger Maris, and Nolan Ryan.
