When I had a passage approved in this book by Harvey Frommer I was thrilled. I’ve reviewed all of his previous releases for the past 5-7 years and I think he’s the best baseball historian on the planet. The Boston Red Sox play in a baseball museum and their history is among the richest in the game and “Remembering Fenway Park” by Stewart, Tabori @ Chang, is a must buy for Red Sox fans but all baseball fans can appreciate the photography and the short stories written in this book by a lot baseball buffs (including me) and that makes this extremely interesting.

"Baseball in the Garden of Eden" by John Thorn (Simon and Schuster,$26.00, 365 pages) has as its sub-title "The Secret History of the Early Game." In what can be viewed as a book that is part detective story, part investigative reporting, part labor of love - - and all eye-opener, the acclaimed baseball historian tells it like it was and is.

DOM DIMAGGIO: The first time I walked into Fenway Park was a day in April 1940. It was before the season; there was ice on the field. Coming from California, it was a bit of a shock to me. I was wondering how we were going to start on time.
