More than any other sport, baseball has developed its own niche in America’s culture and psyche. Some researchers spend years on detailed statistical analyses of minute parts of the game, while others wax poetic about its players and plays. Many trace the beginnings of the civil rights movement in part to the Major Leagues’ decision to integrate, and the words and phrases of the game (for example, pinch-hitter and out in left field) have become common in our everyday language. From AARON, HENRY onward, this book covers all of what might be called the cultural aspects of baseball (as opposed to the number-rich statistical information so widely available elsewhere). Biographical sketches of all Hall of Fame players, owners, executives and umpires, as well as many of the sportswriters and broadcasters who have won the Spink and Frick awards, join entries for teams, owners, commissioners and league presidents. Advertising, agents, drafts, illegal substances, minor leagues, oldest players, perfect games, retired uniform numbers, superstitions, tripleheaders, and youngest players are among the thousands of entries herein. Most entries open with a topical quote and conclude with a brief bibliography of sources for further research. The whole work is exhaustively indexed and includes 119 photographs.

John Updike wrote about the lure of golf for five decades, from the first time he teed off at the age of twenty-five until his final rounds at the age of seventy-six. Golf Dreams collects the most memorable of his golf pieces, high-spirited evidence of his learning, playing, and living for the game. The camaraderie of golf, the perils of its present boom, how to relate to caddies, and how to manage short putts are among the topics he addresses, sometimes in lyrical essays, sometimes in light verse, sometimes in wickedly comic fiction. All thirty pieces have the lilt of a love song, and the crispness of a firm chip stiff to the pin.

Golf and Philosophy

Pages: 275
Authors: Andy Wible
Categories: Political Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 2010-08-11 - Publisher: University Press of Kentucky

In a game where players are expected to call their own penalties and scoring the least points leads to victory, decorum takes precedence over showmanship and philosophical questions become par for the course. Few other sports are as suited for ethical and metaphysical examination as golf. It is a game defined by dichotomies -- relaxing, yet frustrating, social, yet solitary -- and between these extremes there is room for much philosophical inquiry. In Golf and Philosophy: Lessons from the Links, a clubhouse full of skilled contributors tee off on a range of philosophical topics within the framework of the fairway. The book's chapters are arranged in the style of an eighteen-hole golf course, with the front nine exploring ethical matters of rationality and social civility in a world of moral hazards and roughs. The back nine pries even deeper, slicing into matters of the metaphysical, including chapters on mysticism, idealism, identity, and meaning. Taken together, the collection examines the intellectual nature of this beloved pastime, considering the many nuances of a sport that requires high levels of concentration, patience, and consistency, as well as upstanding moral character. Golf and Philosophy celebrates the joys and complexities of the game, demonstrating that golf has much to teach both its spectators and participants about modern life.
Tips for Taking Life and Golf to the Next Level

Regardless of what society tells us, we were created to be totally dependent upon God physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The problem is we have put ourselves at the center of our lives and moved God out to the periphery as we try to satisfy all of our desires and ambitions. Only after life begins to "hit the fan" do we realize that "something" is missing. Unfortunately, as powerless human beings we continue to substitute the yearning in our hearts for spiritual and emotional needs with the acquisition of worldly possessions. However, the gnawing emptiness within not only remains, it turns us numb as we continue our search for more of life's gusto. Developing physical, emotional, and spiritual reflex responses is critical to a purpose filled life. To those who feel there is a more fulfilling way to live, let these tips be your playbook for both games. A former golf professional and golf coach, Bill Carlucci resides in Connecticut with his wife Maria of 30 years and two daughters Emily, 24 and Leah, 18. He has played a strong role with the Chamber of Commerce and the Southwest Area (CT) Commerce and Industry Association. He is a past member of the Board of Directors of both Stamford Hospice and the Stamford Youth Foundation. Bill received training in Christian Care-giving, Christ Care Small Group Leadership and as a Prison Fellowship volunteer. He is both a licensed and ordained member of the clergy Bill's ministry is to train people of all ages to manage life using the same mental focus and strategies used in golf. The ministry uses the unifying relationship building opportunities golf provides to break down denominational and racial walls currently standing in the way of unityamong Christians.

Golfers will find expert tips on choosing the right wedges, putters, and balls, as well as illustrated step-by-step instructions on swings used in short-game shots. They'll also find information on how to beat bunkers and other hazards and how to play various lies-in deep rough, from the fairway, uphill, side-hill, and off bare ground.
