|Pages/Publication Date:||272 / 2019|
An Emmy-winning sportscaster with a 12-year pitching career in Major League Baseball, Ron Darling offers his own take on the "six degrees of separation" game, linking wild, wise, and wistful stories that reflect a life devoted to our national pastime. Darling has played with or reported on just about everybody in the majors since 1983, and they in turn have connections with just about everybody who put on a uniform in a previous generation. Through relationships with baseball legends like Willie Mays, Bart Giamatti, Tom Seaver, and Mickey Mantle, Darling's reminiscences reach all the way back to Babe Ruth, Red Sox ace Smoky Joe Wood, and other early 20th-century greats.
