About The Book

With a Foreword by Roger Kahn, author of the legendary baseball book The Boys of Summer, here are words of wisdom and whimsey by players, managers, writers, and sportscasters, that will entertain and educate any baseball fan.

The Little Red Book of Baseball Wisdom unearths a treasury of quotes reflecting more than a century’s worth of history from our national pastime. Featuring contributions from:

  • Hank Aaron
  • Walt Whitman
  • Leo Durocher
  • Ty Cobb
  • Ted Williams
  • Yogi Berra
  • John Updike
  • Dizzy Dean
  • Lou Gehrig

  • And many more!

Novelist W. P. Kinsella, author of Shoeless Joe which became the movie Field of Dreams, wrote that baseball is “a game where little gems of wisdom or whimsy can be created in the dugout, the bullpen, or the press box during long, hot afternoons and evenings of baseball.”
