Let’s Have Another


Every town that has sports fans has that one character.  One person that spends their whole career in that town as a journalist, announcer or sometimes both.  Fans relate to those types of people and after a certain amount of time consider them part of the family.  A strong sports town like Cleveland has one of those types of people.  Dan Coughlin has spent his life weaving himself into part of the fabric of Cleveland sports.  Now he has a new book out re-living some of his greatest memories.

By: Dan Coughlin-2015

Coughlin, as mentioned above has spent his entire career and life for that matter in the Cleveland area.  He has endeared himself to fans and become a part of the Ohio sports family.  During his career he has covered more than just baseball as does this book, but I figured that he has also been such a mainstay in Cleveland baseball that his book should be acknowledged.

This is the third in Coughlin’s series of books where he looks back on the highlights of a career spent in Cleveland.  He re-lives some of the great stories and characters that he crossed paths with through the decades.  If you are from Cleveland or have spent any time in the area taking in the sports scene, you will really enjoy these stories.

Now for those of us who have never lived in Cleveland or witnessed Dan Coughlin’s work first hand, this book still has some appeal.  You may not identify with Coughlin on as strong a level as Cleveland fans but you will still be able to enjoy the history contained in these stories.  It gives outsiders an inside pass to what Cleveland sports has to offer behind the scenes.  It also offers a history lesson about Cleveland sports that may be difficult to obtain on any other level except for a lifer at the heart of the action.

As I mentioned above, it does cover sports other than baseball.  On the other hand it does offer a fun look at Cleveland sports and allows the reader to engage in the sports history of a new city.  Readers should check it out, because there is is some funny stories contained in here as well as some detailed history.

You can get this book from the nice folks at Gray & Co Publishers

    Read it when the ink was not even dry. Great stores and they are all true. I have every book Dan wrote and every once in a while I pick one up and refresh my memory. Keep the coming Dad
