Some brief overview of this book

This evocative classic presents original interviews with two dozen players. Includes a 32-page booklet with photos.

More than 40 years ago, determined to do for baseball what John and Alan Lomax did for vernacular American music, he began interviewing ballplayers whod been active in the early years of the 20th century... Five years, 75,000 miles and two hernias later—the ancient Tandberg reel-to-reel tape recorder he lugged around weighed 27 pounds—Mr. Ritter turned the interviews into The Glory of Their Times: The Story of the Early Days of Baseball Told by the Men Who Played It... The Brooklyn Dodgers and the Yankees announcer Red Barber called it the greatest baseball book ever written. The novelist Nelson Algren predicted the book would be around as long as baseball, and so far, hes right.... I didnt think this whole thing would amount to anything, Mr. Ritter, who turned 80 a few months ago, recalled recently in his apartment on West End Avenue.
