As baseball author and book reviewer Ron Kaplan notes on his blog, the 2013 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox will spawn a slew of books about the winning team before the holidays.
It’s interesting for me to see the collections of fellow book collectors/hoarders, and sometimes they share photos of them on their blogs or in Facebook groups such as Baseball Books. Ron, a devoted
Yankees New York Mets fan,* shared his modest collection of Red Sox titles.
Before Game 6 of the Series commences tonight, I thought I’d share my Cardinals book collection. (A few titles are buried under papers and index cards on my desk, as I need them for the biography of Ken Boyer I’m writing.)
* Big correction: Ron is a Mets fan, NOT a Yankees fan. Big difference!
Thanks for the mention, Kevin, but I’m curious: what is it in my writing that leads everyone to believe I’m a devout Yankees fan? Perhaps it’s the Yankee Fantasy Camp video on the Home Page. But watch the video and towards the end, you’ll learn who I really am.
Sorry about that, Ron. You’re right about the Yankees video clip leading me to believe that. I always thought you were a Yankees fan!
