We know how many readers enjoy receiving a signed book for a gift. That’s why we’re offering this Cyber Monday promo this week. But don’t wait–there are limited quantities here. We are working to make this as painless as possible: it’s first come, first served, and when the signed copies are gone, they’re gone. Here are the titles and the signing information:
My 1961: We have fewer than 10 signed copies of Andy Strasberg’s title about growing up as Roger Maris’s biggest fan during one of the most historic seasons on record, the 1961 campaign that saw Maris break the Babe’s season home run record despite some tremendous obstacles. You can order My 1961 here.
The Baseball Thesaurus 3e: Jesse Goldberg-Strassler’s definitive accounting of the language of the game makes for a fine gift any time of the year. We have a very limited number of signed copies available; buy it alone or combine it with The Football Thesaurus 2e in our Ultimate Sports Lingo Library (see below for details) and we’ll ship signed copies of both! You can order The Baseball Thesaurus 3e here.
The Football Thesaurus 2e: Jesse Goldberg-Strassler continues his chronicling of the history of the language of sports with The Football Thesaurus 2e. We’ll include a signed bookplate with each copy we ship, while supplies last. Buy it alone or combine it with The Football Thesaurus 2e in our Ultimate Sports Lingo Library (see below for details) and we’ll ship signed copies of both! You can order The Football Thesaurus 2e here.
Ultimate Sports Lingo Library: Combine Jesse Goldberg-Strassler’s notable sports-language times for one great gift! We’ll include signed copies of each title as long as supplies last. You can order the Ultimate Sports Lingo Library here.
Goodfellows, The Champions of St. Ambrose: Rick Gosselin showcases a true football glory story of guts and heart spanning nearly a decade. Through faith, fight and perhaps fate, the Giant Killers of little St. Ambrose High School rise as titans of their terrain and end up leaving a legacy millions of young boys and coaches aspire to but very few attain. We’ll include a signed bookplate with each copy we ship, while supplies last. You can order Goodfellows here.
The offer of signed copies applies only to items ordered directly from augustpublications.com and not from any third-party sellers.
We also are offering preorders for The Complete Guide to Spring Training 2022 / Florida. We have been hit by the same supply-chain and printing issues as the rest of the publishing industry, but this title is finally slated to go to press this week. And while we cannot guarantee delivery to by Christmas, we’re feeling pretty good about it for now, and we’ll have more specific delivery info by the end of the week. Check out the title here.
This book is meant for all types of spring-training fans. Hardcore baseball fans scout their favorite teams and eagerly track every open roster spot. Casual fans head to spring training in search of the perfect Florida experience, happy to sip a brew at the outfield bar.
Coverage is arranged by area: Gulf Coast (where the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Minnesota Twins, and Tampa Bay Rays train), greater Tampa Bay (where the Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies, and Toronto Blue Jays train), and the Port St. Lucie/Jupiter/Palm Beach area (where the Houston Astros, Miami Marlins, New York Mets, St. Louis Cardinals, and Washington Nationals train). We also include coverage of other sports, the wide variety of college baseball venues, and Orlando, a popular spring-training destination for fans of all teams.
Changes for the 2022 spring-training season are highlighted, including the status of upgrade plans in Jupiter and Clearwater, new ballpark amenities, and notable historic baseball destinations throughout Florida.
Tentative schedules (as of Nov. 12) are included in each chapter.
