Description


No single act in sports has had as great an impact on our culture, our language, and our imagination as the home run. So how come weve had to wait so long for the definitive biography! Dingers! tells the history of the round-tripper, from Babe Ruth to the chasing and breaking of the Babe's records to today's pumped-up tater totals. Its narrative will trace the relationship among home runs, players, and fans, showing how "going yard" has grown in importance to the point where jacking the ball over the wall often overshadows the actual results of games. Easy to read forhistory, browse for nuggets, or use for reference, Dingers! appeals to casual fans and seamheads alike. Think of it as your one-stop guide to going downtown.
