"I don't think we ought to get paid for that one."
--Wes Parker, Dodgers first baseman after Al Downing pitched a 90 minute shutout

 

BaseballChronology.com: Dr. John Eigenauer

By Patrick Mondout

John Eigenauer is professor of Philosophy and English at Taft College in Taft, California. He grew up a Reds fan in Los Angeles, rooting for his favorite player, Pete Rose, and the Big Red Machine. He has taught English, Philosophy, Physics, Mathematics, Spanish, and Computer Science, and worked in computer technology for NASA and Microsoft. He has seen ballgames in 23 Major League parks and hopes to see them all. He and his wife, Cecilia, live in Bakersfield, California.

We are proud to have John writing reviews of baseball books for us. We sincerely hope his writing, knowledge and passion for the game, and his keen eye for great baseball books - both new and classics - will be appreciated by BaseballChronology visitors for many years to come.
