I had the pleasure of meeting Thomas Boswell many years ago. He autographed my copy of "Life Imitates." We spoke at length about the great Oriole teams of the 70s and what we both considered at the time to be the great unlikelihood that Washington, D.C. would ever again field an MLB team. We were wrong on that latter point. I can only second your recommendation of these two great books and Mr. Boswell's work in general (he is great on golf as well). Love the baseball card shots as well. Great post Murray! We're still reading..
