PRAISE FOR ROGER ANGELL
"Roger Angell . . . comes from the magazine writer's school of sportswriting: calm, meditative, not deadline driven or space cramped, free to follow the fast-and-slow, squeeze-and-relax rhythms of the game."-TIME
"Angell is the best baseball essayist around. His relaxed prose
glides across the page with a confident grace that most writers-let
alone baseball writers-would kill for."-CHICAGO TRIBUNE
