Chris Epting, Author of Awesome New Book Baseball in Orange County to Read, Sign Books TOMORROW in Orange
And Epting has outdone himself with his latest: Baseball in Orange County, which he'll be signing tomorrow in Old Towne Orange.
Yes, it's one of those Arcadia Publishing books filled with pictures, and with long captions taking the place of a narrative, but Epting's work is a bona fide masterpiece. He covers all of Orange County baseball history--not just your Anaheim Angels, but the amateur leagues as well. And not only does Epting retell the bigger stories that are already somewhat known--Walter Johnson's epic prep career and legendary game against a squad led by Babe Ruth up in Carbon Canyon, the Philadelphia A's spring training in Anaheim, the Mexican leagues exemplified by Jesse Flores--but he also digs deep to unearth photos, anecdotes, and all sorts of other wonderful stuff. Sports fan will love the trivia; OC fans will love the history; AND the twain shall meet...or however that saying goes.
Epting will sign copies tomorrow at Moonlight Graham in Orange at 4 p.m. See you there!
