    1. The newest of baseball fans can get a great appreciation for baseball in the 70s and 80s by reading this wonderful book by long-time Washington Post columnist Thomas Boswell. This 1984 book is full of impressions which paint a wonderful look back into a era many remember fondly and some will find fascinating.As a Washington Post writer covering the only major league team in the area at that time (pre-Washington Nationals), much of the books is focused on the Baltimore Orioles. He does a marvelou [...]


    2. My most favorite book of all time. One of my greatest loves is baseball, and reading this book can explain why. It's written with detail, wisdom, and a true understanding of why the great game is so much more than a sport. The author is perceptive and insightful and tell wonderful stories that even non-sports fans can relate to.


    3. This is one of my favorite baseball books of all time and I read this every year! Tom Boswell weaves together a beautiful collection of the ins and outs of baseball, from the minors to the umpires. Every true baseball fan needs to own this book!I read this every year and every year, it gets better and more insightful. MR N





    4. People who know me realize that while I’m open to watching other sports, baseball has been, is, and always will be my first love. Various reasons exist for this, not the least of which is the abundance of quality literature centered around the diamond game. Examples include, but are certainly not limited to: Ball Four, Bill Veeck, Pennant Race, Crazy ’08, Satchel and various other biographies, and doesn’t even get into sabermetric-inclined books such as Bill James’ Abstracts.When I saw W [...]


    5. Coming back to Boswell, who I read when he began publishing his collections, was a quiet pleasure. Published in 1985, Why Time Begins on Opening Day was written amidst the fairly ugly era of the early 1980s--the 1981 split season remains one of the lowest low points of major league history. Through it all, Boswell maintained a firm sense that baseball would survive itself, a lesson that's been repeated with the steroid era. The keys are his appreciation for the ways in which the continuity of th [...]


    6. This is a book of its era, for sure (the early 80's to be exact), but it remains timeless. It is a baseball book, obviously, but it is also a philosophical treatise. It is "just" a sports book, yet it is poetry all the same.Baseball fans of all ages will enjoy this book as a love letter to their favorite sport. Since it came from my childhood, I smiled at every obscure name I could now look up on baseball-reference, but even if you've never heard of Earl Weaver, if you have an affinity for the g [...]


    7. Now that I am a participating member of the community, I can share with my fellow reviewers, one of my annual rights of Spring – dusting off my copy of Tom Boswell’s “Why Time Begins on Opening Day”, and recommending it for its depth of knowledge and insight into my favorite sport to both watch and participate in.Published in 1984, this book will appeal to baseball fans, as it contributes to further linking generations that this game does so well. As he was a beat writer for The Washing [...]


    8. I can't find the link but when I was looking for best books of 2015 this one came listed as a best books people someone had read in 2015. Anyway I brought it and was happily surprised by good the writing is in fact. You don't have to be a baseball fan to read this book but it helps to be old enough for the names Pete Rose or Reggie Jackson to mean anything and so it's like a time machine back to the 70s and 80s where things weren't so complicated, including baseball.


    9. An excellent collection of short articles about baseball in the late 1970's and early 1980's. Boswell understands baseball very well and why the game has such a pull on us fans. Boswell is also perceptive about the managers and players he covers. His interview with Jim Palmer is a great piece.


    10. I enjoyed (as always) learning about the game of baseball. Wish they'd write one like this about players now. I didn't have a baseball consciousness until 2003, and though I remember the Jockey ads with Jim Palmer, I don't know those 1970s and 80s players like I do the guys now.
