More advance praise for a season in the sun. Notes. For Craig Roberts, the best brother and friend a man could have. That season Mantle joined Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, Lou Gehrig, and Ted Williams as the only players who had led both leagues in home runs, batting average, and runs batted in (RBIs) in a single season. During their Hall of Fame careers Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Stan Musial, and Willie Mays failed to qualify for this elite club. This shortlist represents something more significant than the answer to a trivia question. The Triple Crown is at the very heart of baseball’s hold on America.

The book was not initially what I was expecting, but in hindsight it was quite informative with many insightful nuggets for the game. This is a wonderful book for
building a foundation of understanding for the game of baseball. Now I am ready to read the details of baseball in the book "Men at Work." which has been
recommended to me. I did recognize most of the people's names that were mentioned and the fields that were played in. My Dad was the baseball person in our family. This book took me back to my Junior high, high school days, and into the 70's for reflections.

For someone of my age, this was a great read - these were the players of my childhood. For any baseball fanatic with a sense of history, well worth reading - Kahn is well-known for his wonderful sports writing. For younger folks who aren't all that connected to the old, golden days of baseball (50's-60's), it is still an interesting read, but maybe not as great for them as for me. If you've never seen the players chronicled, maybe it will interest you as history or seem a bit dated.

As much as baseball has changed through the years it really has stayed the same. Got that feeling reading this book. Even in the 1970s, a lot of the same issues baseball deals with now were there then, just on a lesser scale. And also think how much less fun summer would be without baseball. Roger Kahn never really disappoints with his books.

A good,quick read on the 1976 season as seen through the eyes of Roger Kahn. If you were a baseball fan during the 70's,like myself,you should enjoy this book. Not a lot of depth but some good stories.

I love Kahn's writing and wish there were more books of this stripe. It is not quite as good as "The Boys of Summer" but close.

If you enjoyed " The Boys of Summer " , you will enjoy this book .
"The Boys of Summer" was the first Roger Kahn book I read. I was blown away by Mr. Kahn's work on 50's Dodgers and how they ended up in the early 70s after baseball. I figured that was his big hit, but I was at a used bookstore and purchased this book, about several different aspects of baseball during the 1976 season.

Mr. Khan visited Walter O'Malley, Bill Veeck (a great chapter), followed Johnny Bench around (including through the 1976 WS, of which he was named MVP), spent a week with a college team, caught up with Stan Musial, and interviewed Artie Wilson, a black player that had the briefest of shots at MLB when he was long past his prime. It is a wonderful collection of stories. Mr. Kahn's access to players and baseball men is unparalleled. His ability to write beautiful sentences and to refer to high culture is much appreciated.
