Late-inning review

It's been about 16 months since the first copies of my Red Faber biography reached bookstores, so I sort of figured that the time for book reviews had passed.

As usual, I was wrong.

The book recently received a nice write-up in NINE: A Journal of Baseball History and Culture. The journal "seeks to promote the study of all historical aspects of baseball and centers on the cultural implications of the game wherever in the world baseball is played. The Journal reflects an eclectic approach and does not foster a particular ideological bias." It is published by the University of Nebraska Press.

Reviewer Harry Jebsen, a history professor at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, described the biography as "a nicely done, easy-to-follow book on one of the lesser-known residents of the Cooperstown museum."

I'll accept reviews such as those whenever they come.
