By Bronson, Eric [Editor]

A few of the contributors are also drawn from academic areas outside philosophy: statistics, law, and history. This volume gives the thoughtful baseball fan substantial material to think more deeply about. What moral issues are raised by the Intentional Walk? Do teams sometimes benefit from the self-interested behavior of their individual members? How can Zen be applied to hitting? Is it ethical to employ deception in sports? Can a game be defined by its written rules or are there also other constraints? What can the U.S. Supreme Court learn from umpiring? Why should baseball be the only industry exempt from antitrust laws? What part does luck play in any game of skill?

Chicago: Triumph Books, 2004-04-01. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. light edge wear; Ken Venturi was a promising young golfer from California with numerous amateur titles when he took of four-stroke lead into the final day of the 1956 Masters.

The press labeled him a choke--a moniker that stuck. Just when it looked as though a once promising career would be wasted, something amazing happened: Ken Venturi won the 1964 U.S. Open, stunning the golfing establishment and becoming the big story of the 1964 season Sadly, Venturi's comeback was short lived. He suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome, which ended his playing career and sent him into a career in which he would thrive: broadcasting. Venturi joined CBS and broadcast golf for 34 years--the longest television career in golf history--coming to be known as the Walter Cronkite of the game. Getting Up & Down is Ken Venturi's story in his own words. It includes an honest and compelling recap of his life and incisive and searing commentary on the game he loves and those who play it, including sections on his longtime friendships with giants such as Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, and Gene Sarazen--and his frosty relationship with Arnold Palmer.

The Express: The Ernie Davis Story

By Gallagher, Robert C

New York: Ballantine Books, 2008-09-02. Trade Paperback. Very Good. light edge wear; "He could do it all, beat every opponent . . . except one." -plaque honoring Ernie Davis, in the lobby of Elmira Free Academy Ernie Davis was an All-American on the gridiron, and a man of integrity off the field. A multi-sport high school star in Elmira, New York, Davis went on to Syracuse University, where as a sophomore he led his team to an undefeated season and a national championship in 1959, and earned his nickname, the Elmira Express. Two seasons later, Davis had broken the legendary Jim Brown's rushing records, and became the first black athlete to be awarded the Heisman Trophy. The number one pick in the 1962 NFL draft, Davis signed a contract with the Cleveland Browns and appeared to be headed for professional stardom. But Davis never ended up playing in the NFL: He was diagnosed with leukemia during the summer before his rookie season and succumbed to the disease less than a year later. In battling his illness, Davis showed great dignity and courage, inspired the nation, and moved President John F. Kennedy to eulogize him as " an outstanding man of great character." An enduring story of a true scholar-athlete, The Express is a touching, impeccably researched, deeply personal portrait of Ernie Davis, and a vivid look at sport in America at the dawn of the Civil Rights era.
