For the Love of Baseball: A Celebration of the Game That Connects Us All by Lee Gutkind

Stefan Fatsis sends his “stunningly perfect, consummately perfect, why-would-anyone-use-anything-else? perfect" glove to be restored by the glove designer at Rawlings. Frank Deford makes the case that the baseball cap may be the most universal article of clothing ever designed. Roger Angell considers why it is that pitchers are “so much livelier and more garrulous than hitters." George Plimpton reflects on the slow demotion of aging or slumping players from pitcher to first base, to the outfield.

United by the authors' fervent love of the game, each chapter in this book reminds us of the unique role baseball plays in our national history and collective imagination. In addition to the authors mentioned above, the lineup includes:

• Kevin Baker
• Jeff Greenfield
• Katherine A. Powers
• Michael Shapiro
• John Thorn
• Sean Wilentz
• And more!

Published previously as Anatomy of Baseball and Great Baseball Stories, this wide-ranging collection now includes pieces by A. Bartlett Giamatti, Gay Talese, Matthew McGough, and George Vecsey.
