    And read below to see how you can WIN a copy of this great book!5177F3WiqNL

    There have been countless books on baseball, filled with hundreds of beautiful color and black and white photographs, taken by pros all over the world.

    But there has never been a book filled with photographs and snapshots taken, not by professional photographers, but by the fans themselves.

    Until now.

    Baseball Fantography in the ultimate fans book, containing well over 200 photographs that have never been published and likely never would have been, if not for this book. It’s also chock full of stories from fans themselves, about their experiences at the ballpark, and with the players who make the magic happen.

    Written by former San Diego Padre Exec Andy Strasberg, the idea for Baseball Fantography was born he came across a picture of him and his childhood idol, Roger Maris, taken at Yankee stadium. When all the memories of that time came rushing back, he knew other fans should have the same experience. He also shares the heart warming story about how he had the chance to meet his idol years later. In addition, it shares a fascinating website where you can see all of the gravesites of the Hall of Famers, including pictures of the graves, here

    Filled with such wonderful chapters such as Hero Worship, Cooperstown, Graves, and Wit and Wisdom of players, Baseball Fantography is chock full of the warm and fuzzy memorabilia you might find buried in your attic. My only complaint is that I wish there were more fan photos of the Red Sox and Fenway Park, but overall, all of baseball is well represented…

    And, in honor of Opening Weekend, I have a copy to give away! How do you win? Head over to Boston Red Thoughts Facebook Page, and post your favorite fan photo. A winner will be chosen from random among the entrants. The deadline to enter is Opening Day at Fenway Park, Friday, March 31st. Good Luck!

      Resulting from the fierce competition prevailing in the market place of internet hosting firms, a large number of companies are below the situations to provide you with various incentives towards the current prospects, as well as new buyers and therefore, enable them low-priced hosting cost. Although the price tends to become low, indeed, there’s a vast deduction in the value and not the high quality of the service they deliver.
