Season Ticket: A Baseball Companion

by Angell, Roger

Condition: Near Fine

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1988. 406 Pages. Gray boards with maroon quarter-spine with silver lettering. Purple endpapers with a five inked-line inscription on the front endpaper. The inscription is with weak red ink and is barely visible. Interior text pages are near flawless. Dustjacket flap price $18.95 is unclipped. Dust jacket has a small peel near the bottom front. Season Ticket continues an exploration of America's summer game conducted by the best baseball writer ever. Covering the five vivid and various seasons since his Late Innings, Roger Angell again takes us to the ballpark, out onto the field and into the clubhouse; to the sunstruck, easy afternoons of spring training, on to the grinding midsummer pennant campaigns, and then to the crescendos of the championship playoffs and the World Series. Angell's reportage, as always, is also an examination of our passionate preoccupation with this complex, sturdy, and elegant national pastime, an appreciation of ourselves as fans and critics and true owners of the game. Angell is a lifelong fan, and his joys and despairs, prejudices and unreasonable hopes, invite the reader into the comical and sometimes miserable sort of belonging that the sports pages largely overlook. The stuff of baseball is here in abundance. Star performers like George Brett, Wade Boggs, Dwight Gooden, Tom Seaver, Pete Rose, Keith Hernandez, Don Mattingly, Fernando Valenzuela, Jose Canseco, and Jack Morris are seen in moments of trial and triumph, and here as well are famous innings and games and series of our recent past-the captivating rise and horrific demise of the Cubs; the Summer of the Tiger, 1984; the bitter, turnabout, all-Missouri World Series of 1985; and of course the incomparable playoffs ending in the World Series of '86 and much more.. Second Printing. Hard Back. Near Fine. Illus. by Bacon, Paul - Jacket Design and Illusteration. 6 1/4" X 9 1/4".
