Publishers Description: When Legendary Negro League player Buck ONeil asked sports columnist Joe Posnanski how he fell in love with baseball, Posnanski had to think about it. From that question was born the idea behind BASEBALL AND JAZZ. Posnanski and the 94 year old ONeil decided to spend the 2005 baseball season touring the country in hopes of stirring up the love that first drew them to the game. This book is just as much the story of Buck ONeil as it is the story of baseball. In a time when disillusioned, steroid“shooting, money hungry athletes define the sport, Buck ONeil stands out as a man that truly played for the love of the game. Posnanski writes about that love and the one thing that ONeil loved almost as much as baseball: jazz. BASEBALL AND JAZZ is an endearing step back in time to the days when the crack of a bat and the smoky notes of a midnight jam session were the sounds that brought the most joy to a mans heart.
