  1. Hey Sports Book Guy (Lance),
    I've written a dozen or so books on baseball, and before that was managing editor for Total Baseball, Total Football, and the ESPN Baseball and Football Encyclopedias, plus other extinct forms of reading. My best book, I think, is Swinging '73, published by Lyons Press in 2013. It covers the 1973 baseball season from the perspective of the Oakland A's, New York Mets and Yankees: the advent of the DH, Charlie Finley's controversial building of a dynasty, the closing of original Yankee Stadium, the Steinbrenner regime, and the "Ya Gotta Believe" Mets of Tug, Tom, Yogi, Jerry, Jon, and Rusty, with some cultural signposts observed in passing. My most recent book is One-Year Dynasty on the 1986 Mets, also by Lyons Press. My website is My email is Of course I would be willing to do an interview. You can contact me at Thanks.
