The summer game by Roger Angell( Book )

20 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in English and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Summer Game, Roger Angell's first book on the sport, changed baseball writing forever. It goes beyond the usual sports reporter's beat to examine baseball's complex place in our American psyche." "Between the miseries of the 1962 expansion Mets and a classic 1971 World Series between the Pirates and the Orioles, Angell finds baseball in the 1960s as a game in transition - marked by league expansion, uprooted franchises, the growing hegemony of television, the dominance of pitchers, uneasy relations between players and owners, and mounting competition from other sports for the fans' dollars."--Jacket

Angell's collected New Yorker essays, written in his unique voice as a fan and baseball aficionado, cover the development of the game both on the diamond and off. While diving into subjects such as Sparky Anderson's '84 Detroit Tigers, the legendary 1986 World Series and the Curse of the Bambino, and the increasingly pervasive issue of player drug use, Angell reveals the craft and technique of the game, and the unforgettable stories of those who played it

Witty and deftly drawn parodies from a literary legend Roger Angell has a long history with the New Yorker: the son of fiction editor Katharine White and the stepson of E.B. White, Angell has spent decades writing and working for the magazine, to which he has contributed across genres and gained special renown for his essays on baseball.

This old man : all in pieces by Roger Angell( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the acclaimed New Yorker writer and editor, a compendium of writings that celebrate the view from the tenth decade of his richly lived life In February 2014, The New Yorker published an essay by Roger Angell called "This Old Man," a meditation on life at age ninety-three. With great humor and not an ounce of self-pity or sentimentality, Angell wrote about health, mind, and memory; reckoning with the past and a long list of friends and family who have died; daily joys and struggles; and, above all, love. Cheerful and beautiful and moving, the piece became an instant classic, won a National Magazine Award, and has been shared and discussed by legions of readers young and old. "This Old Man" is the centerpiece of Angell's new book, which gathers essays, letters, photos, comic verse, and drawings that in aggregate present a kaleidoscopic portrayal of a deeply engaged and vibrant life. Angell's fluid prose and native curiosity make him an amiable and compelling companion on the page. Whether the subject is coping with the loss of his wife, Carol, editing John Updike, the seventh game of the 2014 World Series, his appreciation of fox terriers, or the Fourth of July ceremonies in his summer home in rural Maine, what links the pieces (most of recent vintage) is the deep sense of gratitude that suffuses them. Gratitude for the people he has known, the experiences he's had, the writers and friends and baseball players he admires. It's a portrait of a full and fascinating life, but a portrait always directed generously outward. Angell is New Yorker royalty. Son of Katharine S. White, the first fiction editor ofThe New Yorker, and stepson of E.B. White, Angell wrote his first piece for the magazine in 1944 and was for many years chief fiction editor himself. His affectionate take on the magazine and the personalities who've worked there makes for a lively slice of twentieth (and twenty-first) century cultural history. He is even better known as a baseball writer--he's in the Hall of Fame with Babe Ruth and Willie Mays!--and the baseball writing in the book is pure heaven for fans of the national pastime. Engaging, sharp, and wonderfully written, This Old Man is a pure pleasure to read"--
