Memories of Summer: When Baseball Was an Art, and Writing about It a Game

Kahn moved quickly up the ranks. By his mid-twenties--he was younger than most of the players--he was covering his beloved Dodgers. It was the start of a distinguished career that includes 16 books and stints at Newsweek , Sports Illustrated , and the Saturday Evening Post.

Interwoven among his journalism anecdotes are impressions of controversial New York Giants manager Leo Durocher and his relationship with young superstar Willie Mays; thoughts on Mickey Mantle; and reflections on Mays' last hurrah as an aging, largely ineffective superstar. Of special note to journalism buffs is Kahn's account of his role in the inception of Sports Illustrated.

Kahn's reputation will generate deserved interest for this worthwhile, satisfying reminiscence. Wes Lukowsky. Enter your mobile number or email address below and we'll send you a link to download the free Kindle App.

Write a product review. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Verified Purchase. This is a compilation of old notes and essays Kahn had available to put together into a book. I am not sure how much of this has been previously published. The dialogues with Kahn and Stengel are very amusing and the narrative about Kahn's early years as a reporter for the World Series is something I'm sure I've read before. The book closes with two long, agonizing interviews with Mantle and Mays. On Mantle he concludes the alcohol abuse wasn't as serious as the debilitating knee and leg injuries.

On Mays he agrees with George Will, who angrily attacks those who condescendingly praised Mays as a natural talent, etc. Mays, Will says in Men at Work, was always thinking ahead.

So also with The Catch, which Kahn says Mays was certain he would make; the concern in his mind was getting the ball back to the infield before the runner could score from second. Mays never said "Say hey! Mays went along with this nonsense. I am not sure how much of this has been previously published.

Mays never said "Say hey! Mays went along with this nonsense. His last interview, when "Willie Mays says goodbye to America" because he couldn't play as he used to, provokes tears every time I think of it.

Mantle was white and so he was deified; Willie was simply the best ever. I grew up in the 50's and baseball and the men who played it were superstars. Roger Kahn, the author brings it all back to life, while giving me a new outlook on the real men, not just what the media at the time allowed me to see.

    Kahn actually knew the players and wrote about them. This is not a book written by a person who was not at the games. I believe that this is one of the best books written about baseball. If you're a fan of baseball, especially the post World War 2 era, you'll enjoy this. I've read Kahn's Boys of Summer and this is not quite in that league.

    Nonetheless, Kahn is an excellent baseball writer and reporter and his talents as a sports journalist are on full display.
