Jerry Reuss made my day when he shared a kind word about Baseball in Alabama: Tales of Hardball in the Heart of Dixie:
"I’m about halfway through your book. So far, I’ve loved everything I read. There’s some great background info on many of the former teammates that I didn’t know. It only adds to their stature as people and not ballplayers."
Many thanks! Check out Jerry's website and his top-notch photography, particularly his images of old ballparks: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jerryreuss/sets
