2009-03-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)"Forging Genius" is what got me interested in reading about the early years of baseball. I'd like to learn more about the Pirates of Honus Wagner. I have Christy Mathewson's "Pitching in a Pinch", which is a lot of fun.
(mhixpgh from Pittsburgh)
I like Charles Einstein's bio of John McGraw as well. More than 75 years after his death, McGraw remains one of the most compelling figures ever to be involved with baseball. (Steven Goldman)

How about Christy Mathewson's "Big Six?" There's still some debate on exactly what was meant by that. (Steven Goldman)
2008-02-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you could go back in time to watch one game, what would it be? I often think it might be the Merkle boner game, though I don't like being jostled by crowds and would thus spend 8 innings seeking high ground. Second choice for me: the game where Satchel Paige called in the outfield and infield in pitching to Josh Gibson, though that might be apocryphal and could break my time machine. How about you?
(oira61 from San Francisco)
That's a really tough call. I saw the Reggie 3-HR World Series game on TV when I was a tyke. That might be cool. Any game where Ted Williams had a couple of hits... The game where Casey Stengel let a bird fly out from under his cap... Any game Walter Johnson or Christy Mathewson pitched... Satchel Paige in his prime would be VERY cool to see. Great call there. (Steven Goldman)
