Today's Happy Baseball Birthday! goes out to writer Bernard Malamud, author of "The Natural."
Malamud's book was turned into an award winning, and in my opinion, the best baseball movie ever made.
"...their goes Roy Hobbs, the best that ever was."
Malamud was born on April 26, 1914, in Brooklyn, NY.
The Natural, which came out in 1952, was Malamud's first published work.
Malamud passed away in March, 1986, just a couple of years after The Natural made it to the big screen.
Today we say Happy Baseball Birthday! Bernard Malamud!
