"Picked for their variety and their literary quality, they (the stories) range from Ring Lardner's hilarious yarn about a girl-struck rookie pitcher to Bruce Brooks's gripping account of racism on a high school basketball court to Gerald Kersh's tragicomic saga of a match between wrestlers born forty years apart. Some of the finest authors of the twentieth century - including Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, John Updike, James Thurber, and William Saroyan - are represented here, writing about sports as various as karate, football, boxing, skiing, hunting, and horse racing.
