When a batter races toward first base and fielders scramble to make a tough play, anything can happen. Tales from First Base is a humorous and insightful look at the players, coaches, and umpires who have spent time along those first ninety feet of the base path.

Brad Engel and Wayne Stewart check out some of the funniest players and most amusing incidents from this corner of the diamond, such as the time Larry Walker and opposing cornerman Mark Grace traced out, in the dirt around the bag, a running conversation with each other. And then there was Dick Stuart, a fielder who wasn't exactly known for catching baseballs. But, he once caught a bounding bat that had slipped out of the hands of a hitter and later in his career received a standing ovation from a Pittsburgh crowd when he caught a hot dog wrapper on the fly. Readers will also learn about the first-sackers' roles in some of the most famous plays of all time, such as the blown call that cost Detroit pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game on June 2, 2010. When umpire Jim Joyce later apologized to Galarraga, the player graciously accepted the apology, stating, Nobody's perfect.

Packed with exclusive interviews with popular players at all positions—including fan favorites Hank Aaron, Jeff Bagwell, Curtis Granderson, Adam LaRoche, and Joe Carter—this book will appeal to newcomers to the game and die-hard fans alike.
