Baseball Fantography (eBook)

by (Author)

  • 39,452 Words
  • 192 Pages

A treasury of candid photos and behind-the-scenes trivia covering decades of baseball history.
 
Baseball Fantography is a celebration of baseball through the eyes of fans, via photos they’ve taken of players, ballparks, and related subjects over the past nine decades, along with essays, sidebars, and quotes.
 
The project originated when the author discovered an old 1960s snapshot of himself as a teenager with his idol, Roger Maris, at Yankee Stadium. Realizing he couldn’t be the only one with these hidden photographic gems, he began collecting baseball photos taken by fans. The book contains:
 
  • More than 250 never-before-published images of such players as Roberto Clemente, Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter, and Josh Hamilton
  • Chapters on subjects like ballparks, spring training, broadcasters, dugouts, and baseball cards
  • Contributions from baseball aficionados and notables like Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith, a thirty-five-year veteran Topps baseball photographer, and a former president of the Baseball Hall of Fame
  • A foreword by Bob Costas
