Frank Deford “Over Time”
May 15th, 2012
For half a century one of America’s most celebrated sports journalists has been Frank Deford, whose unique ability to somehow tell a football or baseball or golf story from an angle no one had seen or thought of before has made him a legend.
Starting out in 1962 in a “Mad Men”-like environment at Sports Illustrated, Deford has since moved on to television and radio, but can still tell a tale like nobody else.
His new memoir “Over Time” is a rich feast of Deford stories — his own, as well as those of the people he’s covered — that tells as much about the state of sports journalism and how it’s changed as it does about the sports these men and women cover.
