About Douglas B. Lyons

Who's Who in Baseball traces its origins back to its being a spin-off of the popular Baseball Magazine deep in baseball's dead ball era. The first issue appeared in 1912, and the second issue appeared in 1916, with Ty Cobb on the cover. The publication has come out each spring since. Harris Publications, Inc. (through its division, Who's Who in Baseball Magazine Co.,) has published the book since 1956. The basic cover-design format of red cover background and black type has been used since the 1940s, and the look of this great publication is so recognizable to readers that the editors feel comfortable covering up most of the word BASEBALL in the logo. Douglas B. Lyons is a leading authority on all things baseball. He is the author of Out of Left Field, Curveballs and Screwballs, and Short Hops and Foul Tips, all of which he co-wrote with his brother Jeffrey. He also wrote Broadcast Rites and Sites: I Saw It on the Radio with Red Sox broadcaster Joe Castiglione. Marty Appel is the author of many books, including Pinstripe Empire and most recently the New York Times bestseller Munson. Following his years as the Yankees' public relations director, he became an Emmy Award-winning television producer and director of Marty Appel Public Relations. Appel lives in New York City and appears frequently on ESPN, HBO, the MLB Network, and the YES Network.
