Andy Strasberg: That's Baseball

Young Andy and Roger Maris
I saw Andy Strasberg, former Padres executive, perform his one-man play, That's Baseball, at the Lyceum Theater in San Diego last night. A multi-media account of his passion for baseball and his special relationship with Roger Maris, the show was fantastic.

Andy's nostalgic stories of growing up a Yankees fan in NYC were mixed with humor and sentiment in just the right proportions.

He's a very gifted storyteller whose anecdotes catch perfectly my generation's bond with baseball and the heroes of the day.

Andy's also got a new book out. Fantography is a collection of baseball photographs from fans that celebrates the relationship between fans and baseball. He plans to release a series of books with the same concept for different sports.
