The Baseball Game I'll Never Forget: Fifty Major Leaguers Recall Their Finest Moments lives up to its title as a compendium of amazing, true-life tales from the great sport of baseball through the decades. Vintage black-and-white and color photographs of scenes from the sport, as well as classic trading cards, illustrate these vignettes capturing moments of edge-of-seat excitement. The Baseball Game I'll Never Forget is a joy to browse and makes an excellent giftbook for enthusiasts of the sport. Highly recommended!-- (02/01/2019) Baseball Digest has been continuously published since 1942. One of the most popular features through the years has been the The Baseball Game I'll Never Forget. Milton, an award-winning journalist and former beat reporter covering the Toronto Blue Jays, has organized this selection of those pieces around themes. The first section includes six standouts discussing different firsts in their big-league careers. Fernando Valenzuela recalls his first full year with the Los Angeles Dodgers, unable to speak much English but taking the league by storm and leading the team to the World Series. Hall-of-Famer Brooks Robinson remembers signing with the Baltimore Orioles right out of high school in 1955 for the princely sum of $4,000. He describes himself as shaky after being told he was going into his first game. There are pitchers recalling no-hitters and perfect games, batters who had days when the pitches appeared as large as beach balls, and, of course, many still basking in the glow of their first appearances in the World Series. Photos complement the text, along with terrific reprints of the players' baseball cards from the year or years they discuss. A fine trip down memory lane for baseball fans.-- (01/18/2019) A look at fifty greats of the sport and games that defined their lives and career...
