Love the story series? Now read the book!
There is no more passionate baseball historian than Craig Wright. His stories are fascinating, well researched and well written. Craig has a wonderful gift for telling intriguing stories that we have never heard, and providing little known details of familiar tales. … The photographs are priceless, and the research notes impossible to ignore. For any baseball fan, this book is a true treasure....long overdue....a loving gift to followers of the greatest game in the world.
Eric Nadel, Texas Rangers Radio Announcer, 2014 recipient of the Ford C. Frick Award
Every time I read one of Craig’s stories, it’s like reading the very best parts of a book …
It’s also a beautiful, substantial book, filled with perfectly evocative images.
Rob Neyer, Senior ESPN writer in his review for the Hot Corner Bookstore
While I consider myself extremely knowledgeable about the game, I was pleasantly surprised to learn things I didn’t already know. And even those topics I do know were enjoyable in the retelling.
The book’s essays are short, well-researched and easily digestible, and are followed by what became my favorite feature—”Research Notes.” Rather than cram everything into several pages, Wright expertly chopped topics into a few pages and then ended each essay with lists of interesting tidbits.
Whether you’re someone like me, who’s been researching baseball for 40 years, or a casual fan or someone who has a son or daughter who wants to learn more about the game, I can’t recommend Pages From Baseball’s Past enough. It’s an entertaining and informative read that will keep you warm until pitchers and catchers report early next year.

A must for baseball fans
The entertaining stories & old-time illustrations are a perfect marriage of words and pictures.
Super enjoyable read!
Learned a lot and had fun doing it. Highly recommend.
I am a baseball history buff, so when I saw this title I had to have it. The stories are wonderful. The research that was done for these stories is amazing.
[The stories] humanize the players/managers and draw me in as much as reading a good series of fictional short stories — from the heart-warming, to tragic, to intriguing — always aware these are real people. The stories also give fascinating historical context … Wright makes connections that a less astute writer would miss or fail to express so clearly.
