With a caliber of stories and extracts several notches above the expected fare in a compilation, this collection includes contributions from Matt Christopher (Wingman on Ice), Walter Dean Myers (Slam!), Enid Bagnold (National Velvet), Ring Lardner (You Know Me Al), and P. G. Wodehouse (Mike at Wrykyn).

"At their best sports are enthralling, dramatic, and exciting," says author Alan Durant, compiler of Sports Stories . . . a collection that includes such classics as "You Know Me Al" (1914) by Ring Lardner, and a chariot race sequence from Homer's "the Iliad." (700 B.C.)— Boy's Life, July 2003
