A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Milo Hamilton has called 11 no-hitters and a World Series, often in tandem with such broadcast legends as Jack Buck, Jack Brickhouse, Bob Elson, and Harry Caray. His work was so well-received that he was enshrined into the broadcasters? wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. He received an even more unexpected honor eight years later ? election to the exclusive Radio Hall of Fame, of which only seven other baseball broadcasters belong. He has truly managed to work his way up from humble origins. The story he tells in Making Airwaves: 60 Years at Milo's Microphone is a profile in courage, a tale of talent and determination, and a behind-the-scenes look at seven decades of baseball history.

About the Author:

Milo Hamilton has been the radio voice of the Houston Astros since 1985 and is a member of three Halls of Fame. The man who called Hank Aaron's record-breaking 715th home run has also worked for the Browns, Cardinals, White Sox, Cubs (twice), and Pirates. The Iowa native made his radio debut in Guam as an 18-year-old U.S. Navy seaman in 1945. He began his long career behind a big-league microphone eight years later. In 2006 he will work spring training, Astros home games, and two road trips.

Dan Schlossberg is the author or co-author of 29 baseball books and has contributed to Baseball Digest, The Sporting News, MLB.com, and the All-Star Game and World Series programs. The former Associated Press sportswriter is also managing editor of "BallTalk," a syndicated weekly radio baseball show, and president of the North American Travel Journalists Association.

Bob Ibach is the author of three previous books, including Caught in the Net, soon to be a major motion picture about cheating in college basketball. The former public relations and publications director of the Chicago Cubs previously worked for The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun, Philadelphia Journal, and CBS Radio. His PR firm, Ibach & Associates, has offices in Illinois and Florida.
