Called out but safe : a baseball umpire's journey by Al Clark( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If an umpire could steal the show in a Major League game, Al Clark might well have been the one to do it. Tough but fair, in his thirty years as a professional umpire he took on some of baseball's great umpire baiters, such as Earl Weaver, Billy Martin, and Dick Williams, while ejecting any number of the game's elite--once tearing a hamstring in the process. He was the first Jewish umpire in American League history, and probably the first to eject his own father from the officials' dressing room. But whatever Clark was doing--officiating at Nolan Ryan's three hundredth win, Cal Ripken's record breaker, or the "earthquake" World Series of 1989, or braving a labor dispute, an anti-Semitic tirade by a Cy Young Award winner, or a legal imbroglio--it makes for a good story. Called Out but Safe is Clark's outspoken and often hilarious account of his life in baseball from umpire school through the highlights to the inglorious end of his stellar career. Not just a source of baseball history and lore, Clark's book also affords a rare look at what life is like for someone who works for the Major Leagues' other team"--

Making airwaves : 60 years at Milo's microphone by Milo Hamilton( )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Milo Hamilton has called 11 no-hitters and a World Series, often in tandem with such broadcast legends as Jack Buck, Jack Brickhouse, Bob Elson, and Harry Caray. His work was so well-received that he was enshrined into the broadcasters wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. He received an even more unexpected honor eight years later, election to the exclusive Radio Hall of Fame, of which only seven other baseball broadcasters belong. He has truly managed to work his way up from humble origins. The story he tells in Making Airwaves: 60 Years at Milo's Microphone is a profile in courage, a tale of talent and determination, and a behind-the-scenes look at seven decades of baseball history

The history of baseball, and its rules
Miracle over Miami : how the 2003 Marlins shocked the world by Dan Schlossberg( )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nobody gave them a chance. The experts said their manager was too old, their pitching was too young, and their ownership was too frugal to compete against experienced opponents with deeper pockets. What rivals did not realize, however, was that the Florida Marlins were making the most of their march toward the Emerald City. Like the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, the team coupled heart and courage to survive what seemed like insurmountable obstacles, clinching the National League wild card with just two games left to play. In the playoffs, Florida again fooled the forecasters. After spotting one-and two-game leads against the Giants and Cubs, the Marlins battled back in both series to beat the odds and grab the second pennant in team history. Winning the World Series, especially against an experienced Yankees club whose payroll was more than three times the size of Florida's, was just another David versus Goliath triumph for the Little Teal Machine. Bunt hits, speed on the bases, timely hitting, solid defense, and potent pitching proved to get the better of Goliath in the end. Miracle Over Miami: How the 2003 Marlins Shocked the World is the story of the most unlikely world championship in recent memory, a lesson in how to build a winning team with limited resources, how to plug holes with rookies and acquisitions, and how to win by having fun. Jeff Conine is the only man to play for both Florida world championship teams. In a rare inside-the-clubhouse look he shares his thoughts on his teammates, compares the 1997 and 2003 teams, and describes what it was like to be member of a miraculous team. All the heroes are here: rabbits Juan Pierre and Luis Castillo, local heroes Mike Lowelland Pudge Rodriguez, rookies Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera, flamethrowing pitchers Josh Beckett and Ugueth Urbina, and cigar-smoking manager Jack McKeon. Fans are invited to once again come to the land of black-and-teal in Miracle Over Miami, where nothing is impossible and the Marlins rule the planet

When the Braves ruled the diamond : fourteen flags over Atlanta by Dan Schlossberg( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1991 through 2005, the Atlanta Braves did something no pro sports team can match, finishing in first place for fourteen consecutive seasons. During that stretch, the Braves paired powerful pitching with potent hitting that produced under pressure. Hall of Fame manager Bobby Cox won with veteran teams, young teams, slugging teams, and several times with teams that emphasized speed and defense. His teams captured on hundred wins in six different seasons. In When the Braves Ruled the Diamond, now newly updated to include a discussion of the team's latest Hall of Fame inductees, former AP sportswriter Dan Schlossberg covers the record-breaking era that transformed Atlanta from the Bad-News Braves to America's Team. With separate chapters on Cox, fabled pitching coach Leo Mazzone, and Hall of Fame pitchers Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and John Smoltz, this book also highlights the contributions of Andres Galarraga, Andruw Jones, Chipper Jones, Brian Jordan, Javy Lopez, Terry Pendleton, and many more Braves stars. It features year-by-year summaries, Opening Day lineups, and even oddball anecdotes that explain why the fourteen-year streak may never be duplicated."--Amazon
