More About Sylvia A. Johnson

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Sylvia A. Johnson has had a long career as a writer of nonfiction for young people. Her books on scientific and historical subjects have received many awards. A recent title for Atheneum, "Tomatoes, Potatoes, Corn, and Beans: How the Foods of the Americas Changed Eating Around the World," was chosen as a Notable Children's Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies and was also named a 1998 New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age. It was while doing research for that book that Ms. Johnson saw some fascinating old maps, which led her to think about the role of maps in human history and to write "Mapping the World."

In addition to her career as a writer, Sylvia A. Johnson also works as a freelance editor of books and educational materials for young people. She enjoys gardening and traveling, especially to warm climates during cold winters in Minnesota, where she makes her home. Ms. Johnson lives in Minneapolis in a gray-shingled house that she shares with a gray-striped cat named Smokey.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Get Bats  Oct 17, 2006
The 1986 New York Mets were the World Series Champions led by one of the greatest managers in franchise history, Davey Johnson. But this book, Bats, is about the 1985 Mets, a second place finishing, good team.

They say that no one remembers who finishes second. I would like to change that and say we should remember who comes in second if they should come in first the following year. Which is what the Mets did. With this viewpoint in mind, one would and should take a look at Davey Johnson's season long account of the year before the year of the legendary 86 team.

Within Bats is a look at what Johnson saw, felt, and thought while he maintains a rocky relationship with Frank Cashen, the general manager, develops a heavy dependence on Rolaids, and issues one hundred and two hundred dollar fines to players for base running mistakes and showing up late to the ballpark. He talks about what he did to get the job and how he handled his players; Keith Hernandez talking in the third person and like a kid when he points out a good accomplishment to Johnson "did you in see Mex hit that home run?", Doug Sisk, with his inconsistent pitching performances, gets the most mentions in the book, , and his prediction about Dwight Gooden pitching a perfect game in the future (he does, but for the Yankees in 1996).

Probably taken from a daily journal, the book is very autobiographical and provides a pretty well rounded look at Johnson, the man and manager. Being only in my early twenties, I was only four and five and too young to understand the Mets of the Eighties in the same way I came to understand and love the Mets of the Nineties (the hard decade that it was) and, of course, the 2000's. Having got Bats, I feel closer to my favorite sport franchise and caught up in terms of history.

Did you know that the 85 Mets passed up two opportunities to re-acquire the great Tom Seaver?

Before I got Bats, I read Jeff Pearlman's, The Bad Guys Won, about the 1986 Mets. For the intellectually curious Met fan or any baseball fan, I would recommend both books as great holiday gifts. I would recommend Dwight Gooden's Heat as the great stocking stuffer as well.
