For Love of the Glove

Phil Nero

Part memoir, part historical account, For Love of the Glove is Phil Nero's personal odyssey into the heart of America's pastime, interwoven with engaging, joyful stories of those who love the game. In what is perhaps a farewell season for some, under the warm sunshine of a Florida winter, and in the twilight of their years, the Boys of Summer play on. Nero capture's it all: the camaraderie of team, the sacred and not-so-sacred traditions of the game, and the lifelong lure of putting on a baseball glove and taking the field one more time. Hop aboard this six-month trip into one fan's lifelong love of baseball, his dive into the history of the game, and personal homage to what might be sports' most beguiling, perhaps even enchanting piece of equipment. For Love of the Glove brings the reader on a journey that takes into account not just the joy and traditions of our national pastime, but the thrill and magic of our timeless reconnections to arguably the world's most beloved game.
