Overview:Baseball as I Have Known it - 'Lieb was an indispensable addition to any press box: he was there...Reading his gentle memoirs is like having a drink at the Cubby-Bear Lounge outside Wrigley Field with an old-timer who remembers seeing Swish Nicholson play centerfield' - "New York Times Book Review". '[Lieb] has seen the best the game has had to offer, from Ed Delahanty to Tom Seaver...It is a rare treat to read these vivid reminiscences recalling the exploits and personalities of early greats such as Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson, and Nap Lajoie...This belongs in every popular sports collection' - "Library Journal".From Honus Wagner to Johnny Bench, "Baseball As I Have Known It" covers sixty-six seasons of America's national sport. Fred Lieb, the dean of baseball writers, tells about its heroes, rogues, controversies, and grand plays. He broke in as a sportswriter in the Polo Grounds press box in 1911. In 1933, in the midst of the Depression, Lieb was fired from the "New York Post" and began a freelance career writing about his beloved sport. "Baseball As I Have Known It", first published in 1977 when Lieb was eighty-nine years old, remains a vital record of a glorious bygone era. In superb style, he comments on changes in baseball over the decades and tells inside stories about great events and immortal players. Introducing this Bison Books edition is Lawrence S. Ritter, author of "The Glory of Their Times".
