Heritage is really trying hard to suck me in this year. On top of the design which is more visually appealing than the three previous years put together, I pulled this in the 5th pack I opened:
Brosnan pitched for the Cubs, Cardinals, Reds and White Sox over 9 years, compiling a 55-47 record with a 3.54 ERA. What he’s probably best known for are his books “The Long Season” (written as a diary of the 1959 season) and “Pennant Race” (detailing the 1961 season). “The Long Season” is a book I’ve long thought I should read, it was the first book that took an honest look at the life of a major leaguer. Perhaps this is a sign that I should get off my duff and read it.
