Playing Ball with the Boys
Betsy Ross


The use of female sideline reporters is the fastest-growing new aspect of televised broadcasts of professional and college football. Names like Suzy Kolber, Erin Andrews, and Andrea Kremer are now as well known as any of the men in the booth. In recent years women have been sports columnists and reporters, talk-show hosts, even coaches and team administrators. And yet there has never been a book about this phenomenon.

Former ESPN news anchor Betsy Ross fills this void with Playing Ball with the Boys, a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the emerging role that women play in sports broadcasting and reporting as well as in the business of sports. Ross interviews a number of the biggest names—from Kolber and Kremer to USA Today columnist Christine Brennan and Lesley Visser and many others—who offer first-hand accounts of the struggles and the triumphs of women playing what has always been a man’s game.

She provides a history of this unique facet of the sports world, from pioneering female newspaper sports reporters to the celebrated breakthrough into televised sports by former Miss America Phyllis George, who is interviewed in the book. Ross covers the controversial moments, from locker room confrontations between players and female reporters to the infamous sideline interview in which Joe Namath attempted to kiss Suzy Kolber during a live broadcast.
Readers also learn of women who played pro sports on male teams or coached men’s teams. They meet a woman who runs a professional baseball team and another who is a team doctor.

Through this tale, Ross weaves her own story, recalling how she went from a small town in Indiana to the anchor’s chair at the largest sports network in the world, ESPN. She explains what it’s like for a woman to succeed in the male-dominated world of sports broadcasting.

Black and Blue (paperback)
Bob Berghaus


    Formed in 1967, the NFL's Central Division, made up of the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, and Minnesota Vikings, quickly earned the nickname “Black and Blue Division” due to the teams' fierce, physical play. Through the years, many of the toughest men in pro football have played in the Black and Blue — from Butkus to Nitschke, Eller to Spielman, Favre to Singletary to Karras to the Purple People Eaters.

    Now known as the NFC North, the rivals still battle each other twice a year, celebrating their 40th season together in 2006. Black and Blue celebrates along with them, recalling the great plays and players, the memorable seasons, and the crucial games through first-hand interviews with players and coaches and first-rate photography. Capsule summaries of every game played in the division make this an essential reference for every football fan.

Sid Gillman
Josh Katzowitz


Father of the Passing Game

Sid Gillman, unlike so many of his coaching colleagues, never wrote a book about himself. He never published his own ideas about the game and why he thought passing the ball in an age where most quarterbacks handed off to running backs was the key to his success. In more than four decades of coaching, nobody thought it necessary to tell the definitive Sid Gillman story. Until now. 

Gillman was a true innovator. The kind of football genius that goes overlooked by today’s average fan, but who will never be forgotten by the coaches he directly – and indirectly – impacted. The modern-day offenses that emphasize spreading the field with receivers, running backs and tight ends? That was Gillman’s idea. The idea that the long pass could stretch a defense? That was Gillman’s baby as well. What NFL fans watch today in ever-increasing numbers (and the high-flying offenses those fans love) can be directly traced back to the Midwestern coach who was a forerunner to the West Coast offense.

Gillman wasn’t a perfect man. He had plenty of warts, and he made plenty of enemies. But he also made a major impact on the game, comparable to how Vince Lombardi, Paul Brown and Woody Hayes left a timeless impression. Josh Katzowitz tells you how Gillman was just as important as any coach who came before him or afterward. 

This is not simply a biography of an innovator. It details exactly how and why the NFL football you watch today is the image of what Gillman believed was possible. It’s why football luminaries like Al Davis, Bill Walsh and Chuck Noll cite Gillman as one of the most important influences on their careers and lives. It’s why if you watched the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, you could see the scope of Gillman’s reach. In order to truly understand the reason why football offenses are so exciting today, learning about Gillman is absolutely essential. Katzowitz takes you on that journey.

Paul Brown: The Rise and Fall and Rise Again of Football's Most Innovative Coach (Paperback)
Andrew O'Toole


        Paul Brown is a football legend, yet few fans know the story of this very private man. This book follows Brown’s life and career, from his childhood and college years through his domination as a coach on every major level — high school, collegiate, and pro — to his painful exile from a sport he essentially helped create. In relating the story of Paul Brown and his gridiron innovations, Andrew O’Toole tells the story of modern day football.

    Paul Brown ranks as one of the greatest of football coaches in history Considered the "father of the modern offense," Brown dominated as a gridiron general on every major level — high school (Massillon HS - from "Go, Tigers"), college (Ohio State), and professional (Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals).

    Brown gained his reputation as an innovator during his time in Cleveland. He was the first to use intelligence tests to judge players, establish a film library, instruct players in a classroom setting, attempt to use a radio transmitter to communicate with players on the field, and install face masks on helmets.

    He was also a person known for his stubborn approach to criticism. Brown was honored in 1967 by his election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. In addition to that accolade, two stadiums bear his name: Paul Brown Tiger Stadium in Massillon, and Paul Brown Stadium, current home of the Bengals. Indirectly, a third stadium bears his name: Cleveland Browns Stadium. Learn more about Paul Brown in this book. Grab a copy today, settle in your favorite easy chair and get the facts about one of football's greatest coaches.

The Local Boys
Joe Heffron and Jack Heffron


Hometown Players for the Cincinnati Reds

Foreword by Chris Welsh
Though one of the smaller markets in Major League Baseball, Cincinnati has produced far more than its share of professional baseball players and many have played, at some point in their careers, for the hometown team. And hometown fans worshiped them. Though nearly 3 million people live in the area, the city retains a certain small-town sense of self. And it holds no one in higher regard than a local boy in a Cincinnati Reds uniform. No dream is better understood — or held in such esteem — as hoping to play for the Reds. For proof, note the 50-foot-high bas-relief sculpture on the wall at the entrance to Great American Ball Park. In it, a Cincinnati boy envisions himself among the clouds—playing ball with the Reds he idolizes.

Local Boys tells the story of the men who achieved the dream. From Ethan Allen to Don Zimmer, from Charlie “Bushel Basket” Gould, who played on the first team in 1869 to Junior Griffey, soon to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. They’re all here. Alongside big-name stars like Dave Parker and Buddy Bell, fans will find Eddie Hunter, who played only one inning in 1933, never got to bat and never fielded a ball. Every player receives a one- or two-page profile, many of which are based on original interviews with the player or surviving family members. The profile goes beyond statistics; it brings the player to life through stories that have never been told in print before.
