Tim Lemke On Sports Books


Greg Franklin mentioned this post over at Baseball Think Factory. (Discussion)

I just finished reading Wilt 1962 by Gary Pomerantz. (That website really complements the book.) Lemke would probably classify it as a Feinstein-esque Book. I’m a sucker for these microhistory books. Anyways, Pomerantz mentioned something in the acknowledgements that may or may not stick with me. I’ve been kind of down on oral history because it has been demonstrated that peoples’ memory can be pretty hazy most of the time. However, he found it useful providing you use multiple sources. That wasn’t especially profound, but it hadn’t occurred to me recently.
