Called the "poet laureate" of fielding by George Will, Kaplan has written two books on the subject, in addition to histories of the Red Sox, Yankees and Giants, an appreciation of Casey Stengel (with Ira Berkow) and a biography of Hall of Fame pitcher Lefty Grove. Kaplan graduated from Yale with a B.A. in history and earned a Master's at Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism. After three years of covering sports and writing book reviews for the Minneapolis Star, he spent 16 years at Sports Illustrated, then turned to freelance writing.
