Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Using 1986 as a springboard, New York Times sports columnist Vecsey here roams the landscape of sports and allied subjects. The son of two journalists writes of his New York childhood, of his own later family, of countries and cities he loves. In the realm of sports, he begins with the Orange Bowl; in between, he covers the Mets and their World Series victory, the World Cup of soccer and various events in basketball, hockey, boxing and tennis. Vecsey's anti-boxing arguments are forceful and his fondness for baseball infectious; conversely, his enthusiasm for soccer wil not stir many American readers.

From School Library Journal

YA-- Vecsey has chronicled a year of writing about sports in diary format. His assignments vary from basketball, football, and baseball, to covering the World Cup of Soccer and the Goodwill Games in Moscow. Any sports fan will enjoy the close personal insight and contact with so many familiar people and places. Vecsey takes readers into the locker rooms, on the road, and behind the scenes into the press areas. Students considering a writing career will come to feel the thrill, challenge, and difficulties a journalist encounters in meeting deadlines, being creative, and just coming up with the daily column. With its twofold appeal that combines sports and journalism, the book will make students feel like they've had a press pass for a year.
