Краткое описание

Cooperstown Confidential: Heroes, Rogues, and the Inside Story of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, is not just a museum and a place to honor great athletes, as Zev Chafets reminds us here; it's where America's pastime announces to the world what it is and what it wants to be, and a mirror of our national culture. His insider's history of the Hall is an irreverent and highly entertaining tour that pulls back the curtain on the politics, the players, and the people who own and preserve it, from the history of the founding Clark family to the battle over steroids, the economics of induction, and secret campaigns by aspiring players."Put in a couple of dead bodies, an inquisitive professor who looks a lot like Tom Hanks and maybe a car chase or two and Zev Chafets would have sports' answer to The DaVinci Code.... A literate and provocative climb through the cobwebs, misconceptions and flat-out prejudices that exist behind the shiny exhibits at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Nice work. Maybe Tom Hanks can play Zev Chafets in the movie."—Leigh Montville
