Having 1 chapter in in a book all about you, a legend. Having a chapter that tells your greatest moments and life story.Baseball anecdotes is a book that tells you about baseball's greatest players of all time. Each chapter is a new legend to be told. You get to know the truth about how baseball was created and who helped developed baseball.Baseball anecdotes by Daniel Okrent is a kind of Historical book that shows more behind baseball’s greats and how baseball was changed due to the many legends that baseball has made. This book gives it all, not leaving a part out.Daniel Okrent wants us readers to really learn about baseballs history and baseball's greatest players, but doesnt give the real full story, just gives the main points and facts. If they would tell each players full story, then the book would be endless. So Mr. Okrent sums up each story and gives stories about Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, and many more.An excerpt from the book that illustrates dedication is,"Kid, you won't see a throw like that again in a million years." This quote shows that many of baseballs great have a cocky attitude and know that others can not beat them in anything.If you like this book, you also may like Nine innings by Daniel Okrent because in this book, because it dissects and gives you more detail about a full nine inning game. This book tells the anatomy of every 9 inning baseball game. I rate Baseball Anecdotes a 5 out of 5 star, because it was a book that I really loved. This book taught a lot more than I already knew about baseball and its history. I really enjoy playing and learning about the game of baseball, and I feel that this book is a book that I will always read and a book that I will never get rid of. I can use this book to get valuable information about baseball’s greatest and most legendary players,coaches, and managers.

Read information about the authorDaniel Okrent's 40-year career has encompassed nearly every form of mass media. In book publishing, he was an editor at Knopf, Viking, and Harcourt. In magazines, he founded the award-winning New England Monthly and was chief editor of the monthly Life. In newspapers, he was the first public editor of the New York Times. On television, he has appeared as an expert commentator on many network shows, and talked more than any other talking head in Ken Burns's Baseball. In film, he was featured in the documentaries Wordplay and Silly Little Game, appeared in a speaking role in Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown, and had what he calls "a mumbling role" in Lasse Hallstrom's The Hoax. Online, he headed Time Inc.'s internet efforts in the late 1990's, and has recently given in to the dubious charms of Facebook.
But all that, he says, was either preparation for (or distraction from) what he most wanted to do: write books. Beginning with Nine Innings in 1985, and proceeding through the 2010 publication of Last Call, Okrent has been (wrote novelist Kevin Baker in Publishers Weekly) "one of our most interesting and eclectic writers of nonfiction over the past 25 years." In addition to the books featured on this site, he was also co-author with Steve Wulf of Baseball Anecdotes (Oxford University Press, 1987), and author of The Way We Were: New England Then, New England Now (Grove Weidenfeld, 1989), currently out-of-print.
