Book Description

"Neal D. Bogosian has written a wonderful little baseball novel set n 1909."

-- Bill Reynolds, The Providence Journal

"A delightful trip back to a simpler time, when baseball was still a innocent game."

-- Dennis Purdy, Author of The Team By Team Encyclopedia of Major League Baseball, Baseball on the Brain, and Kiss 'Em Goodbye.

Before Babe Ruth, there was Chip Doolin! Set in 1909, The Adventures of Chip Doolin are the improbable and humorous tales of a farm boy from Somewhere, Virginia, who has few life tools and an abundance of raw talent, who becomes the starting first baseman for the 1909 Detroit Tigers. It soon becomes apparent that the fate of Chip Doolin is a blessed one - heroics and home runs are part of his destiny. The stories chronicle Chip's subsequent adventures on and off the baseball diamond, including his courtship with "Eleanor Ferris, the blue-eyed daughter of Mr. Ferris, whom Chip had fancied ever since he knew about the bond between a man and a woman." Chip's follies are often amongst some of baseball's most prominent and colorful luminaries including Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, Walter Johnson, Nap Lajoie, Tris Speaker, Rube Waddell and Hughie Jennings, with cameo appearances from the likes of famed boxer John L. Sullivan, President Willam Howard Taft, and famed writer, Ring Lardner. The stories are sure to warm the nostalgic hearts of baseball fans young and old.

** Some of the content in The Adventures of Chip Doolin, was originally published in the national publication, Vintage and Classic Baseball Collector Magazine, as an ongoing series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story of old time baseball December 9, 2012
Format:Paperback
I bought "The Adventures of Chip Doolin" for my son to read... I ended up reading it myself, and thought it was such a nice story about life in baseball way back when. I especially appreciated that it showcased respect and decency. A lot of people could learn a lot just by reading this book. Great job!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best sports books my son ever read January 20, 2012
By Rick G
Format:Paperback
My 12 year old just finished the book. He really liked it and said he'd definelty re-read it sometime. He reads +2000 pages per month and his favorites list is usually reserved for the big name authors that pump books out like crazy.

He's looking forward to more adventures!
