Readers' Comments

"Like its title, this is a glorious book, a trip through the lesser known by-ways of our best game, a bittersweet collection of stories of those who made it - briefly - to the top."
   - Ken Burns, producer of The Civil War, Baseball, The Shakers, and other PBS documentaries. 

"Rich Letarte wins Author Rookie of the Year Award with That One Glorious Season."
   - Dan Shaughnessy, sports columnist for the Boston Globe and author of The Curse of the Bambino and five other books.

"... A must-read for those enamored with our national pastime.  Rich Letarte draws a warm and vivid picture of the time when baseball ruled the sporting world.  This fond remembrance entertains and informs with magic observations and fascinating tales."
   - John W. Gearan, longtime columnist for the Worcester (MA) Telegram and Gazette.

"Wow! Suddenly, I'm ten years old again.  A well-researched, wonderfully-written, treasure trove of baseball heroes of the nineteen-fifties and early sixties, highlighting their miracle performances.  The book was fun and enthralling, the pages kept turning and turning.  I truly enjoyed That One Glorious Season."
Calvin S. Fisk, standout athlete at the University of New Hampshire in baseball and soccer and a member of its athletic Hall of Fame.  Older brother of Carlton Fisk, who was inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame in 2000.
