Paul Staudohar, emeritus professor of business at Cal State East Bay, first published a collection of Baseball’s Best Short Stories in 1995. He recently followed up with a new edition in April 2012 and conducted a podcast with Ron Kaplan’s Baseball Bookshelf to explain how a university business professor came to edit an anthology of baseball stories. Listen to the podcast.

In the new edition of Baseball’s Best Short Stories (Chicago Review Press; 2012), Staudohar edited 34 short stories about the nation’s favorite pastime written by some of America’s favorite writers, including Zane Grey, James Thurber, Tobias Wolff, George Plimpton, Robert Penn Warren, T. Coraghessan Boyle, and Michael Chabon, among others. 

Known as a practiced anthologist, Staudohar has researched and published several other sports-related story collections, including Football's Best Short Stories, Golf's Best Short Stories, Hunting’s Best Short Stories, Boxing’s Best Short Stories, and Fishing’s Best Short Stories.
