My Mailbox...Stars and Strikes

Today I received a copy of Dan Epstein's new book about baseball and America in 1976, Stars and Strikes.

I won the book in a contest on Twitter, courtesy of The Book Dude.

Growing up a baseball fan in the 1970s was fantastic, from Pete Rose running over Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star Game, to Willie Stargell's World Series winning 2-run HR in Game 7 of the 1979 Fall Classic.

I look forward to reading about the Bicentennial year of 1976, and re-live the wonderful year of my 16th birthday, and the great game of baseball.

Play Ball!
