Description: Seth Swirsky loves baseball -- and he loves writing letters to baseball players, both active and retired. For his second book, he has written to dozens of pitchers, catchers, and other ballplayers, asking them questions that center around pitching, batting, and key moments in their careers. He asks his correspondents to reveal critical details, from what kind of pitch they threw in a memorable World Series showdown, to what their game-day ritual is, to how they learned the rudiments of pitching -- many from their fathers -- when they were young. About one hundred of these exchanges are included in the book, which is printed in a two-color interior. The letters are reprinted in facsimile with the handwriting of each ballplayer in clear relief. Swirsky introduces each letter with a short bio of the player and a description of the question he asked each letter writer. The book also includes dozens of photographs that complement and amplify the letters.
