We celebrate the new major league baseball season with a terrific new book about baseball written by one of our own, Decatur’s Robert Weintraub (author of the 2011 bestseller The House That Ruth Built. His new book is The Victory Season: The End of World War II and the Birth of Baseball’s Golden Age. It begins with the remarkable 1946 season when stars like Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio and Stan Musial returned from the war to set off one of the sports’ greatest seasons that culminated in an epic seven-game World Series. Soon after that the legendary Jackie Robinson would make his debut, and baseball would never be the same. It’s a fascinating story whether you’re old enough to remember or are hearing about it for the first time. Weintraub is a fine writer whose work appears on ESPN and major newspapers around the country. We’ll have first edition copies of his book available here for sale and signing. (jasbro)… (mais)

Robert Weintraub discute The House That Ruth Built: A New Stadium, the First Yankees Championship, and the Redemption of 1923.
We help to celebrate the 2011 major league baseball season by welcoming a Decatur-based author with a wonderful new book for all fans of the game: ”The House That Ruth Built: A New Stadium, the First Yankees Championship, and the Redemption of 1923.” It’s a dazzling look back at the 1923 New York Yankees, the team that opened Yankee stadium and won the first of the Bronx Bombers’ 27 world titles. The centerpiece of this true story is the mighty Babe Ruth, soon to become the game’s greatest slugger, and the Yankees’ World Series win over their bitter rivals, John McGraw’s New York Giants. Weintraub is a lively writer, and his story is fresh and entertaining whether you’re a long-time baseball fan or just intrigued by the story of the Yankes and the Babe. We’ll have books for sale and signing, so come on out to the ’ol ball park with us! (jasbro)… (mais)
