Ron Fimrite

Writer and bon vivant Ron Fimrite first went to baseball’s spring training in 1967 on assignment for the San Francisco Chronicle. He has been back more than 30 times since. His years of watching baseball in the desert informed Put Some Swing in Your Spring, his essay on spring training in Arizona. Ron is also the author of The World Series: A History of Baseball’s Fall Classic and he edited The Birth of a Fan, an anthology of essays about being introduced to the sport.
