The summer game by Roger Angell( Book )

23 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in English and held by 1,114 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 absorbing collection traces the highs and lows of major-league baseball in the 1980's Roger Angell once again journeys through five seasons of America's national pastime-chronicling the larger-than-life narratives and on-field intricacies of baseball from 1982 to 1987. 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

A day in the life of Roger Angell by Roger Angell( Book )

12 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. With A Day in the Life of Roger Angell, the author's gifts as an urbane humorist come to the fore. The pieces here include two of Angell's famous Christmas poems, parodies--of horoscopes, sports broadcasts, and Lawrence Durrell--and a tense correspondence over a short fiction contest that pays only in baked goods. Combined, these miniatures form a funny and charming chronicle of Manhattan life, as experienced both on the ground and in the city's most literary circles
