Curt Smith's 13 books include the classic Storied Stadiums: Baseball History Through Its Ballparks. Smith wrote more speeches than anyone for former President George H.W. Bush. Today he hosts National Public Radio's affiliate "Perspectives," is a GateHouse Media columnist, and teaches English at the University of Rochester. Famed pollster John Zogby terms him "the pre-eminent baseball raconteur in the country."
