C. Paul Rogers III is the co-author with boyhood hero Robin Roberts of The Whiz Kids and the 1950 Pennant and with Bill Werber of Memories of a Ballplayer: Bill Werber and Baseball in the 1930s, among other writings on baseball history. He is also editor of a new "Sport in American Life" series to be published by the SMU Press. He has been a Phillies? fan since his boyhood in Casper, Wyoming and feels like he has endured each of the Phils? 10,000 losses personally.
