Greatly looking forward to his new project — This Old Man: All in Pieces — which is slated for release on Nov. 15.

Here’s one of my favorite profiles of the iconic baseball writer. And one written by the man himself.

I don’t usually consult Wikipedia, but I’ll make an exception this time for an Angell bibliography because I’m lazy.
