Summary

The saber was the weapon of the soldiers and dueling heroes here in the Carpathian Basin for more than a thousand years. During this time it became more than a simple tool of fighting. It became a loyal companion and a symbol of valor of the wielder. This weapon and the valiant spirit of its wielders became known in Western Europe and North American via Hungarians. At the time of our settlement Western Europe feared the sight of the saber, it became a worthy opponent of the Turkish and later, after the civil war of Rákóczi it brought us honor in the wars fought at the side of foreign countries. Maybe there is no other sword type like this which reserved its significance for so long time.
 
 The saber is not only an antique weapon of a past era, but much like a sports tool as a foil which is used at the Olympic Games.
 
 This book contains an elaborated practical curriculum. With the help of it, the saber fencing can be learned from the basics to master level. The book guides the reader through hundreds of exercises with the help of more than a hundred photographic illustrations. These can help anyone to learn the basic moves, the more complex exercises and even the trick-cuts or disarmament.
 
 We prove with this book that the saber fencing is a living sport and martial art.

    "Oh, the game was very different in my day from what it's like today.  I don't mean just that the fences were further back and the ball was deader and things like that.  I mean it was more fun to play ball then."—Davy Jones 
    First published in 1966, The Glory of Their Times is a universally hailed classic. It's a delightfully evocative work full of fascinating characters and wonderful anecdotes about immortals like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, and many others.  
    This is also the story of author Lawrence S. Ritter's six year quest to find the heroes of a bygone era.  He interviewed more than two dozen players from the turn of the century and the decades shortly thereafter, including many now in the Baseball Hall of Fame, then let them tell their own stories, in their own words.  The scorecard includes Rube Marquard, Chief Meyers, Goose Goslin, Smoky Joe Wood, Wahoo Sam Crawford, and many more.  This new audio compilation of the original interviews is great news for baseball fans and anyone who loves old-time tales of America's national pastime.

    When legendary Negro League player Buck O'Neil asked Joe Posnanski how he fell in love with baseball, the renowned sports columnist was inspired by the question. He decided to spend the 2005 baseball season touring the country with the ninety-four-year-old O'Neil in hopes of rediscovering the love that first drew them to the game.The Soul of Baseball is as much the story of Buck O'Neil as it is the story of baseball. Driven by a relentless optimism and his two great passions—for America's pastime and for jazz, America's music—O'Neil played solely for love. In an era when greedy, steroid-enhanced athletes have come to characterize professional ball, Posnanski offers a salve for the damaged spirit: the uplifting life lessons of a truly extraordinary man who never missed an opportunity to enjoy and love life.

    Games between the Dodgers and Giants are never just another day at the ballpark. Dating back to the late nineteenth century?when the teams embodied the competitive spirit of rival metropolises of New York and Brooklyn?the Giants-Dodgers rivalry gained intensity throughout the early twentieth century. The cheering and jeering continued unabated until 1957, when the clubs backed the moving vans up to the Polo Grounds and Ebbets Field, and took their rivalry to new venues in Los Angeles and San Francisco.Indeed, Brooklyn-New York baseball was a tough act to follow, but the West Coast version didn’t take long to fire up the emotions. Only six games into the first West Coast season, the clubs had their first beanball dustup. The venue had changed but the venom remained, and the rivalry became author Joe Konte’s obsession. Fifty-eight years ago, he attended one of the first Giants-Dodgers games ever played outside of New York. A longtime newspaper editor and baseball fiend, Konte understands what is so special about this storied rivalry. And so?via statistical analysis, game summaries, roster scrutiny, manager matchups, season recaps, and more?he has put together a rivalry bible. Revised and updated to include the events of the last three seasons?from the Giants’ 2014 World Series win and the Dodgers’ playoff runs?Giants vs. Dodgers captures the spirit and intensity of one of the greatest rivalries in American sports.
