More than 300 ballplayers have spent time with both the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees, opposing teams in one of the most intense rivalries in sports. This book examines the century long antagonism between the two clubs, chronicling their storied pasts and their evolution during the 20th century. Several what-ifs are considered: what if Babe Ruth had never been traded from the Red Sox to the Yankees? What if the clubs had swapped Joe DiMaggio for Ted Williams, as was proposed by the owners of both teams? What if Alex Rodriguez had gone to Boston, as was originally intended, rather than to New York? The debate as to which team has made out better with shared players is explored.

The National Pastime offers baseball history available nowhere else. Each fall this publication from the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) explores baseball history with fresh and often surprising views of past players, teams, and events. Drawn from the research efforts of more than 6,700 SABR members, The National Pastime establishes an accurate, lively, and entertaining historical record of baseball. A Note from the Editor, Mark Alvarez: With great sadness, we run in this issue the late Ralph Horton's final article for SABR, a typically well-researched, clearly written exposition on the Big Four who brought success to Detroit in the 1880s. Ralph's example as an exemplary colleague, researcher, and friend, will stay with us. SABR members fortunate enough to attend the annual convention in Scottsdale, Arizona this past June had two never-to-be-forgotten thrills: watching José Jimenez pitch the Arizona Diamond Diamondbacks' first no hitter, and listening to Tommy Henrich's marvelous keynote talk at the banquet. Our lead article in this issue is Old Reliable's appreciation of outfield mate Joe DiMaggio Along with the baseball insights, we learn just how quiet and distant the Clipper was, even with longtime teammates. Chris Lamb writes perceptively about how differently the white and black press covered the first spring training appearances of Jackie Robinson with Montreal. This pairs nicely with Tom Gallagher's piece on the role played in baseball integration by Lester Rodney and the Daily Worker. David Voigt gives us his choice of the twelve key years of baseball's twentieth century—and a little philosophy to boo. There's plenty more, of course, from Grove to Gumpert, from semipro to the minors to Japanese ball. Jump in!

As John Cheever declared, "all literary men are Red Sox fans" -and certainly no baseball team has inspired more eloquence than the storied Sox. The best of those stories reside here, celebrating the team's highs, from the pennant races through the careers of Williams, Yaz, and Boggs, and eulogizing its most poignant lows, from the loss of Ruth to the ball that rolled through Buckner's legs.

Whose Baseball? expands the boundaries of baseball history by including the experiences of culturally diverse Californians. In doing so, it relates the history of baseball in California to social changes taking place in the Golden State from the Gold Rush to the eve of World War II. This volume demonstrates how baseball has helped to bridge substantial differences between social and cultural groups and at the same time reminds readers of the oppressive power relations buried in the way baseball has been played, organized, and observed in America. Readers interested in baseball history or the history of the state of California will find this an excellent resource.
