    Christmas a-coming. In short, the baby's need for new shoes is only one of a wide range of practical purchases toward which one's prospective winnings might be put. One of the more memorable of those teams was the House of David, a team notable for its big, bushy beards, and playing on behalf of a Jewish religious community based in Michigan. Hilton EditorRing W. Love it, hate it, or aggressively fail to understand it, there's no getting around the impact that Michael Lewis's book has had on the game in the decade since it was published. Ah, eight's me point.

    Beautifully written, filled with fresh facts and revelations, these essays will appeal. But only Ribowsky's bio, which aptly compares Paige to Miles Davis and his battery mate Josh Gibson to Charlie Parker, really gets to the heart and soul of the man. When the son realizes the father's health improves whenever the Red Sox win, he sets out to trick his father into believing his beloved team is winning the pennant despite — well, if you recognize the name in the title "Bucky Expletive Dent," you know what really happens. That sexy-ed it up.

    He is the winner of the national Clarion Award for opinion writing for his work in the Syracuse Post-Standard. In recent years, the sport has been marred by allegations that the game's most popular players are using steroids to enhance performance. Great stuff on Veek, a pioneer perhaps years ahead of his time. Army NCO at the time. Ain't yer dandy dice.

A wealth of statistics, crammed into every available margin space, ranks each player's performance against other 20th-century standouts. Kirst's piece on Gehrig's ashes and numerous other essays are put together from dozens of personal interviews with baseball characters, both famous and obscure: Babe Dahlgren claims he was blacklisted for rumors of marijuana use; Babe Ruth sends a note to a child stricken with polio - a note nearly lost when the family moved, and the first physical confirmation obtained by the Hall of Fame of the slugger's legendary kindness to children; a black cat is brought to the ballpark as a gesture of contempt when Jackie Robinson plays against Syracuse, a team he felt treated him as badly as any in the International League.
