Read full description of the books:
You mushy soft soaper!
You might hear such scandalous name calling if you had
a run-in with your base-ball teammates in 1907.
'The Shortstop' gives a great view of base-ball in
the turn into the 20th century, which isn't played much
differently now, part of its charming fascination.
Yes, some of the lingo differs, the cursing for one;
if you want to rile the opposing pitcher yell:
"Mugg's Landing! Irish stew! Ras-pa-tas!"
Also base-ball is hyphenated, every little town has its
heroes, the teams go by the town name, no nicknames
such as Tigers or Red Stockings, and compete with sometimes
savage rivalry, giving real meaning to 'home field advantage'.
Sometimes a ruckus breaks out on the field and just
as it is today, "great rivalry, great provocation", but
the actually fighting? "it almost never happens".
The story takes place in Ohio, which is where my
parents are from and all their relatives so fun
to hear all the small town names , Mansfield,
Upper Sandusky, Galion, our hero ends up on the
Findlay team, where a niece of mine currently attends
Yes there are scandals, steroids? drug tests?, well, no,
but how about whether or not to play on Sunday?
Usually western writer Zane Grey does a swell job
on this tale of life and the diamond in a simpler era
but you still had to be tough on and off the field to
make your way in world.
If you read this story I hope you find it like I did,
"Sweeter 'n a basket of red monkeys."
