About the Author

Bob Chandler is San Diego´s senior sportscaster. He began working in the San Diego television/radio market in 1961 and began covering the San Diego sports scene full-time in 1963. During his career, Chandler has done play-by-play of the NFL´s San Diego Chargers, the NBA´s San Diego (now Houston) Rockets, San Diego State University football, basketball, and baseball, as well as numerous other college and high school sports in San Diego. He has worked for three different TV stations in San Diego, delivering the regular evening sportscasts and interviews. In 1972, Chandler joined Jerry Coleman as the TV/radio broadcasters for the Padres. Associated with the Padres from 1970-2003, he likely knows more than almost anyone when it comes to San Diego baseball. He is a 1961 graduate of San Diego State and lives in the Tierrasanta area of San Diego. Chandler has four daughters and six grandchildren.

Bill Swank is San Diego´s preeminent baseball historian. He has authored or co-authored six previous books, including his award-winning Echoes from Lane Field, the story of the original 1936 Pacific Coast League Padres who played at the foot of Broadway until the termites ate their wooden ballpark in 1957. His most recent two-volume work, Baseball in San Diego: From the Plaza to Petco, covers the journey of baseball from Horton Plaza to Lane Field (1871-1936), and the birth of the PCL (1936) and NL Padres (1969) - until their move back downtown to Petco Park in 2004.

Format: Hardcover
As a Padres fan, this is the book for your 12 year old son to learn about the team's history. Bob Chandler is just too nice of a person to include many of the juicier details. Still, it had to be part of my collection and I'm glad I made the purchase.
