Pop Flies and Line Drives recounts highlights of the author's personal visits with former professional baseball players who played in the 1940s and '50s, when he was growing up. Using his hobby of autograph collecting as a springboard, the author methodically locates, contacts, and visits many of
the players he watched play in his youth, during baseball's "Golden Era" following World War II. The accounts of his visits stir nostalgic memories of the era and reveal interesting facts about what has happened with many of yesterday's heroes following their seasons in the sun. A "must read" for
those who loved the game of baseball when it truly was America's pastime.
