— The Washinston Post

Shelf Awareness

“A history of the World Series, one the oldest and most venerable of American sports institutions, could feel a bit daunting for readers.

Reading “The Grandest Stage,” bouncing from story to story, feels like having an all-night-long chat with a fellow baseball-obsessed friend.”
Christian Science Monitor

“Encyclopedic knowledge and a spry pen…Mr. Kepner strikes the right balance between reverence for the game’s legends and respect for the randomness in outcome its difficulty ensures…’The Grandest Stage’ is full of unexpected facts and lists sure to stir debate through the cold months between the final out of the World Series and the first toss of spring training.”
— New York Sun
“When it comes to writing a book on the World Series, Tyler Kepner is plenty qualified, and not just because he has covered every World Series for the New York Times for the last 20 years. Kepner’s passion for “The Grandest Stage,” as his new book is called, goes back decades before that.”
San Bernadino Sun
