MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a baseball book, but whether Creamer intended it or not, it's much, much more."-Sports Illustrated * Sports Illustrated *
"Creamer is a solid and clever craftsman who knows when to stay in the dugout to let a narrative pitch itself. . . . How can you not love a book like this?"-Chicago Sun-Times * Chicago Sun-Times *
"Creamer artfully weaves his own 1941-college-boy-on-the-cusp-of-war persona throughout the narrative. There are wonderful asides, ranging from Red Barber's early days as the Brooklyn Dodgers radio announcer to the draft woes of Detroit Tigers star Hank Greenberg."-Time * Time *
"[Creamer] recalls this momentous year in baseball and world history. He reprises Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak, Ted Williams's .406 batting average, Hank Greenberg and the draft, the furious Dodgers-Cardinals pennant fight, and the ensuing World Series. All this is portrayed against the looming U.S. entry into World War II."-Library Journal * Library Journal *
