He is a devoted fan and baseball historian whose first book, “1939: Baseball’s Tipping Point (Bright Sky Press 2005),” was featured in an Associated Press article that appeared in newspapers across the country including the New York Times.
Boston’s fan base includes best-selling author John Grisham, who wrote the forward to his first book and gives the following endorsement that appears on the cover of “Baseball and the Baby Boomer,”: “The greatness of baseball passes from one generation to the next. Some things come and go—players, owners, uniforms, stadiums, teams, sometimes even the rules—but the beauty of the game never changes. Talmage Boston captures the heart and soul of the game that we, as Baby-Boomers, inherited.”
