All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include previous owner inscriptions. I was considering buying the book at a local book store and found the autographed copy on ebay. Alyssa Milano is a great actress and I was curious about her knowledge and passion for baseball. In addition, Joe Torre has a few words in the book's forward.
The book was delivered barnd new and crisp with an autograph as gorgeous as the author. Congatulations Alyssa on a book well written. Alyssa Milano puts to rest any doubts that girls can indeed play with the boys. Her knowledge about the sport coupled with her own insight and well developed opinions make for a fun, well-rounded read. The book is balanced with humor and enthusiasm. There's a little bit in there for every girl- whether it's an explanation of certain types of plays to the insight of Players themselves to the more frivolous "girl" side of things, such as planning one's outfit for that night's game.
Age appropriate for older teens to women of all ages I'm 39 and I loved it! I love Alyssa Milano and I love baseball. She is a true fan who writes from the heart. She takes you on her journey rooting for her team.
Passion is in abundance. She got Joe Torre to write the introduction!!! I'm a red sox fan and I still loved the book. It makes you feel good to be a fan. I met her at a Florida Marlin home game. She was dating Carl Pavano, pitcher for the Marlins. I sat next to her and she has more baseball knowledge than most people I know. Andrew Lloyd. Loyal fan too.

Alyssa Milano's clothing line, Touch, has transformed the way women can support their favorite teams. Alyssa Milano is an actress, author, philanthropist, fashion connoisseur and, perhaps coolest of all, a huge baseball enthusiast with tons of respect for the Yankees. Sure, she's an L.
What's up with that? My dad was a huge Brooklyn Dodgers fan and was heartbroken when they left, as were many children. Then he became a Yankees fan out of spite. I basically grew up watching the Yankees on his lap until we moved to L. ZZ: In your book, "Safe at Home: Confessions of a Baseball Fanatic" I'm guessing you give the comprehensive story regarding how you became a baseball fan, right? AM: Yes, the whole first chapter is basically about how I became a fan. ZZ: Here's a throwback to your days on "Charmed.
Safe at Home: Confessions of a Baseball Fanatic, by Alyssa Milano
The Dodgers are the first team, obviously, so who is the other team? AM: I'd say the Yankees, because I think it would be really, really great for the sport. ZZ: If that happened, would the competition spill over into the home front, or do you think you both could be civil?
AM: I'm not sure I think we could be civil. The player can be from any era. AM: Roberto Clemente. I'm just, lately, obsessed with him. He's been my favorite player forever and I think it's because he's the first athlete to sort of get how important it was to give back to the community, and I'm an ambassador for UNICEF The United Nationals Children's Fund , so the work he was trying to do when he got on that plane strikes a chord for me. And I think he paved the way for athletes to get involved as far as philanthropy and humanitarian efforts off the field.
He was the first to make everyone realize that athlete's voices are powerful. ZZ: You own any cool Roberto Clemente memorabilia? AM: I do. For Christmas I got a Pirates Clemente jersey and it's hanging in my memorabilia room.
It's hard because there's not a lot of memorabilia of his around. ZZ: What's some cool stuff you have in your memorabilia room? AM: I have a signed Yankees ball. I have an autographed photo of Kirk Gibson rounding the bases after hitting that home run in AM: Yes, it is definitely the first of its kind on the market. I think the market has always been there for it, I just don't think baseball took advantage of the power of the female fan.
They weren't doing anything specific to cater to the female fan, so I think that it is an evolution in a sense that it's never been done before in the way that we're doing it. But I always felt there was a market there because I was the market. Will you now, as a Dodger fan, stand up and apologize for that home run? You even make a reference to Baseball Prospectus. Stranger things have happened. The numbers are part of the game. I accept that. I like the numbers but I also like when the unexpected happens regardless of the numbers.
Memoirs have recently been under attack by the news media with inaccuracies found in books by James Frey, Herman Rosenblatt and others.
Adding to Cart...
With that in mind, I wanted to clear up the one major problem found in your book. Branch Rickey discovered Robinson when he was playing shortstop for the Monarchs. Jackie played first base his rookie year and then moved to second for the rest of his career. Total brain fart by not only me, but the publishing professionals that took 20 passes looking specifically for my brain farts. I apologize. I would simply apologize for the steroid era and enforce the strictest drug policy ever.
Cheating in baseball has gone on through the ages. It has overcome cheating scandals before.
