About the Author
Robert F. Garratt is emeritus professor of English and humanities at University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Wash. He has published books and articles on modern Irish literature, including the recent Trauma and History in the Irish Novel: The Return of the Dead. His baseball articles have appeared in NINE: A Journal of Baseball History and Culture and the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) Baseball Biography Project.
“A good reason to read Home Team is the chance to get to know Horace Stoneham the way I did. He was a good friend, a hard worker, and a great man. He did a lot for me and for baseball.”
“Once you begin the journey with Garratt you won’t stop until the first pitch at Pac Bell Park in 2000. Home Team is a must for any baseball fan.”
—Marty Lurie, Giants pre- and postgame radio host of the Bay Area’s KNBR 680
