Now on sale, the new book by Gary L. Livacari
The Best of Baseball History Comes Alive
You may have enjoyed some of Gary Livacari’s articles and essays that I have posted here on Back Home with Baseball and Beyond. If you haven’t read them, take a moment to scroll back and check them out. You will see Gary has a talent for uncovering some of baseball’s most entertaining stories and he truly does make baseball history come alive. His new book is full of these stories.
Here’s an excerpt from the Amazon description of the book:
Over the years, baseball historian Gary L. Livacari has written over one thousand essays for his Baseball History Comes Alive website. Covering all historical eras of the National Pastime, this volume is a collection of over one hundred of his most well-received essays.
There’s a certain romanticism to the “Old Days” of baseball that the current game lacks. The author tries to recapture that lost charm in these essays. If you’re looking for writing on the modern game, you won’t find it here. What you will find is entertaining, interesting essays, stories, and out-right gossip from the Golden Days of baseball. It is a book that will appeal to baseball history fans of all stripes and also to those interested to learn the impact baseball has had on American history and culture. All who love baseball and its glorious past will find the collection to be a source of enjoyable reading. As the author says in his introduction, “If you love baseball history, you’ve come to the right place!”
And by the way: Gary’s has graciously included my essay about Yogi Berra in the book, so I know you won’t want to miss that!
