All-Star reading

July 10, 2013 · 0 comments

The problem with books about the All-Star Game is that unless it concentrates on one specific contest or the origins of the Midsummer Classic, it will be out-of-date as soon as the next one rolls along.

There are, of course, hundreds of books about individual players or lists of “All-Stars.”

And, in a bit of shameless self-promotion: I wrote an article, “All Star Games at Home: How Hometown Heroes Fare,” which appeared in the 1996 issue of Baseball Research Journal, published by SABR. Of course, the piece is out-of-date, leaving off with the 1995 ASG in Arlington, Texas. I know it’s available from the organization’s website, but not sure if it’s for members-only.
