Tom Stone during interview on MLB Now, February 21, 2019.
Hello… my name is Tom Stone. I’m the author of Now Taking the Field: Baseball’s All-Time Dream Teams for All 30 Franchises. I worked on this book off-and-on for nearly 20 years, and am delighted to finally have it published in November, 2018. This is the first of many baseball books I intend to write. I am also a periodic blogger at Seamheads.com.
