Summary "Ring Lardner was first and remains one of the best baseball writers. Both characters and their counterparts have entries, as do the plots and details of some 35 stories devoted to baseball. But Lardner was more versatile, writing 92 hard to categorize non-baseball stories focusing on athletes, writers, theatrical people, musicians, soldiers, embarrassed husbands, and puzzling wives"--Provided by publisher.
