We look atMoreLife at The Sporting News began in 1886, and baseball has long been our life blood. Though photographs, especially baseball photographs, did not appear in the publication until 1902, we still gathered them, collected them, cherished them. We look at them now, as we pass them in our work space, as we comb through hundreds of thousands of images filed away in our research center, and the memories always resurface.Game Faces is a glimpse of the game outside the white lines, candid, engaging and revealing images and portraits of players before their prime, in their prime and after their prime. It is a collection of some of the games greatest names, some of the games most cherished names, and some of the games most obscure names.In Game Faces, youll come face-to-face with a youthful Ted Williams, a brutish Frank Thomas, an aging Babe Ruth. Youll come eye-to-eye with a thoughtful Pedro Martinez, a menacing Randy Johnson, a determined Kerry Wood.Game Faces captures baseball from before-they-were-stars photographs, from Bob Feller to Albert Pujols, to ambassadors of the game, from Tommy Lasorda to Max Patkin to some of the Negro Leagues greatest stars.Come share some memories with us.
