Review

"Baseball is too often confused with the Major Leagues. . . . Baseball is also college and Little League, high school and vacant lot and American Legion and Class A. A Season in the Sun takes its form from Roger Kahn’s notion of baseball’s scope. To make this book, Kahn spent [a] summer touching down at the four corners of the baseball world. . . . For baseball’s characteristic stories—anecdotes and lore the game is rich with—Roger Kahn is best of all, with his sweet ear for the cadence of baseball talk. . . . Take Roger Kahn’s A Season in the Sun down from the bookshelf to hear the soft baseball voices repeating old games in your ear, stories for summer nights or for long winters away from the diamond and the green.”—New York Times Book Review
(New York Times Book Review )

"A time capsule of the '70's as well as a prescient look at what the game would eventually become.”—USA Today Baseball Weekly
(USA Today Baseball Weekly )

A good,quick read on the 1976 season as seen through the eyes of Roger Kahn. If you were a baseball fan during the 70's,like myself,you should enjoy this book. Not a lot of depth but some good stories.

For someone of my age, this was a great read - these were the players of my childhood. For any baseball fanatic with a sense of history, well worth reading - Kahn is well-known for his wonderful sports writing. For younger folks who aren't all that connected to the old, golden days of baseball (50's-60's), it is still an interesting read, but maybe not as great for them as for me. If you've never seen the players chronicled, maybe it will interest you as history or seem a bit dated.

As much as baseball has changed through the years it really has stayed the same. Got that feeling reading this book. Even in the 1970s, a lot of the same issues baseball deals with now were there then, just on a lesser scale. And also think how much less fun summer would be without baseball. Roger Kahn never really disappoints with his books.
