A History of Australian Baseball by Joe Clark Book Summary:
Through extensive interviews and archival research, Joe Clark has uncovered the engaging details of Australian baseball’s unique, and often turbulent, 125-year history, and for the first time the dynamic story of Australian baseball is told. Initially accepted only grudgingly in the late nineteenth century as an off-season substitute for cricket, baseball in Australia steadily rose in prominence. Starting with neighborhood games played between improvised teams, the sport grew to include state and national leagues and a spirited international competition. Both the shortcomings and the triumphs of Australian baseball are revealed in A History of Australian Baseball: Time and Game, from an ill-fated late-nineteenth-century baseball tour of America and the political firestorm surrounding the formation of the Australian Baseball League in the 1990s, to the amazing defeat of the powerhouse Cuban team in the Intercontinental Cup of 1999.
Let There Be Light by Robert B. Payne Book Summary:
The book, Let There Be Light : A History of Night Baseball 1880 to 2008 will show the evolutionary process that took 50 years ( 1880 to 1930 ) before minor league baseball adopted the idea of playing baseball at night. After breaking into the minors, it only took five years before the Majors, grudgingly accepted the idea proposed by Leland "Larry" MacPhail and Powel Crosley to light up Crosley Field in Cincinnati, Ohio. The book has over 70 photographs, 17 documents, diagrams, charts, and letters and over 90 pages of history, stories, and events. The end result is a history of modern day lighted baseball fields which provide healthy entertainment to millions of people every year. This is not a book of statistics, but is one which reveals how civilization and culture develops through hard work and visionary leaders. The first World Series night game was played in 1971. But, by 1985 every World Series game is played at night. Night baseball is an event and is just as exciting as a day game, but much cooler, unless you have an air conditioned stadium. Let's go see a baseball game tonight after work.

Broadcasting Baseball by Eldon L. Ham Book Summary:
There is a long-standing relationship between broadcasting and sports, and nowhere is this more evident than in the marriage of baseball and radio: a slow sport perfectly suited to the word-painting of broadcasters. This work covers the development of the baseball broadcasting industry from the first telegraph reports of games in progress, the influence of early pioneers at Pittsburgh’s KDKA and Chicago’s WGN, including the first World Series broadcast, the launch of the Telstar Satellite, the Carlton Fisk homerun in the 1975 World Series, which changed how baseball is broadcast, through the latest computer graphics, HD television, and the Internet.

Baseball/Literature/Culture by Peter Carino Book Summary:
The Indiana State University Conference on Baseball in Literature and American Culture has consistently produced a strong body of scholarship since its inception in 1995. This work is comprised of 18 essays from the ISU conferences of 1995 through 2001. "I Just Hit .300-Time to Renegotiate My Contract" explores how major American writers such as Hemingway, Faulkner, and Ellison have challenged the pastoral idea of baseball envisioned by Whitman. "The Durable Relic" argues that Donald Hall, one of the foremost poets of today, uses baseball in much the same way that William Butler Yeats used Irish mythology to create "frozen moments, unchanging and durable; ageless heroes, Oisin on the Island of Eternal Youth and Ruth pointing to centerfield." "Baseball, the Market and the Public" analyzes the tension between the game as a business and the game as public trust, tracking the game to its present state of overpaid players and greedy owners. "The Story of Toni Stone" considers race and gender in both the game and culture by looking at one of the most remarkable but least known women in the sport, the only one to play in the Negro Leagues. These are just four of the essays, which cover a wide variety of topics.
Viva Baseball! by Samuel Octavio Regalado Book Summary:
Lively and anecdotal, Viva Baseball! chronicles the struggles of Latin American professional baseball players in the United States from the late 1800s to the present. Even as "Fernandomania" raged in 1981, most Latin players felt lonely, shunned, and forgotten. Samuel O. Regalado reveals the shocking racism faced by these immigrant athletes in a white culture. In addition to mining the National Baseball Library in Cooperstown, New York, and the Sporting News archives, Regalado conducted interviews with some twenty-five Latin baseball stars, including Felipe Alou, Orlando Cepeda, and Tony Oliva.
A Room at the Heart of Things by Elisabeth Harvor Book Summary:
A lively, quirky collection of short stories, poetry, and memoir vignettes from published (Nino Ricci, Robyn Sarah, Rhea Tregebov) and unpublished writers Harvor has met over the years in workshops and as a writer-in-residence in universities and libraries across Canada. Work that has nerve and verve and is close to the bone: this is what I've looked for during the years I've been a workshop leader and writer-in-residence. So that when I made copies of poems or stories that I loved, it was always because the work lived and breathed, or because it was, in an original and off-the-cuff way, thoughtful or profound. Which is how these stories and poems became (along with some memoir pieces) the 'work that came to me.' I didn't have to solicit or select or reject, I was already a collector. And so it gives me great pleasure to invite others to read this collection of writers who I feel will matter in the future because their work already has such force and élan. -- Elisabeth Harvor
Sal Maglie by Judith Anne Testa Book Summary:
To the batters who faced him, pitcher Sal Maglie looked like the hurler from hell. Tall and sinister in appearance, with glowering dark eyes and a formidable five-oÆclock shadow, the famed righthander earned the nickname "Sal the Barber" for his high-inside fastball that cut dangerously close to the batterÆs chin. But Maglie was much more than his intimidating image. This biography provides a colorful, detailed, occasionally shocking, and often moving narrative about the son of poor Italian immigrants who rose far beyond his familyÆs and his own early dreams and became a star pitcher for the New York Giants. He then, at the apex of his career in the mid-1950s, joined the Brooklyn Dodgers. This is the story of a man whose early mediocrity and failures in the minor leagues in no way prefigured his later success and fame. MaglieÆs major league career shines with baseball drama. He was a key player in some of the most dramatic pennant races in baseball history and a participant in several of the sportÆs most famous games. Women found him irresistible, and his first marriage was at times severely strained by his infidelities. Despite his success in baseball, he endured pain, disappointment, and personal tragedy. Through wide-ranging research that includes interviews with MaglieÆs relatives, friends, former teammates, and team officials, as well as newspaper reports, books, and magazines, Judith Testa creates an insightful and compelling portrait of one of baseballÆs most intriguing figures. Baseball fans and people interested in baseball history and in the Italian American experience will discover new insights and a wealth of information in Sal Maglie.

The Minor Arts of Daily Life by David K. Jordan,Andrew D. Morris,Marc L. Moskowitz Book Summary:
The Republic of China on Taiwan is the last nation in the world to be excluded from the United Nations. The world's seventeenth largest economy and Asia's most vibrant democracy, Taiwan has continually to convince the world of its historical independence from the People's Republic of China. At the same time, however, forces of history and contemporary economics make Taiwan's intimate cultural and economic ties to the mainland another crucial reality. Yet somehow under these singular conditions, the people of the island go about their daily affairs, making themselves a remarkable font of creativity and cultural innovation. The Minor Arts of Daily Life is an account of the many ways in which contemporary Taiwanese approach their ordinary existence and activities. It presents a wide range of aspects of day-to-day living to convey something of the world as experienced by the Taiwanese themselves. What does it mean to be Taiwanese? In what way does life in Taiwan impart a different view of Chinese culture? How do Taiwanese envision and participate in global culture in the twenty-first century? What issues (cultural, social, political, economic) seem to matter most? What does China mea
