"Oh, the game was very different in my day from what it's like today. I don't mean just that the fences were further back and the ball was deader and things like that. I mean it was more fun to play ball then." - Davy Jones First published in 1966, The Glory of Their Times is a universally hailed classic. A loving look back at the way baseball used to be, and the legends who played the game--immortals like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, and many others--it's a delightfully evocative work full of fascinating characters and wonderful anecdotes. This is also the story of author Lawrence S. Ritter's six year quest to find the heroes of a bygone era. He interviewed more than two dozen players from the turn of the century and the decades shortly thereafter, including many now in the Baseball Hall of Fame, then let them tell their own stories, in their own words. The scorecard includes Rube Marquard, Chief Meyers, Goose Goslin, Smoky Joe Wood, Wahoo Sam Crawford, and many more. This new audio compilation of the original interviews is great news for baseball fans and anyone who loves old-time tales of America's national pastime.… (més)

This oral history of ballplayers from the dead-ball era sent several of its subjects to the Hall of Fame--like outfielder Harry Hooper, whose joined his first team because it found him a day job as a surveyor, and pitcher Rube Marquand, who ditched the minors for an ice-cream company team. This was not professional sports as we know it, and its players make it sound like a lot more fun.

This is a collection of first person accounts from players who played from the turn of the twentieth century through its fourth decade. Their stories are riveting, endearing, and enlightening. This is a great book. ( )
  fuzzy_patters | May 16, 2021 |
The classic, hardly-to-be-bettered oral history of baseball, and a longtime favourite among lovers of the sport. Essential to have on your bookshelf if you do love baseball. ( )
  EricCostello | Aug 3, 2019 |
A collection of baseball stories told from the perspective of some of the greatest baseball legends ever to play the game in the early 20th Century...Rube Marquard, Joe Wood, Babe Ruth, Goose Goslin, and Hank Greenberg. Contains historic pictures of these baseball greats and America's favorite past time. An engaging read of a time period and game so different from today.

Between 1962 and 1966, Ritter travelled 75,000 miles to interview players from the early days of baseball, sitting for hours recording their tales with his tape recorder. The result, The Glory of Their Times, is the single best book every written about baseball.

The key to the book is the method Ritter used. He turned on the tape recorder and let the players reminisce: tell their stories without prompt or interruption. Only later did he edit. The result is magical.
