"A true Renaissance man, Mr. Bready brought his remarkable talents to bear in the compilation of two indelible histories of the local nine, 'The Home Team' and 'Baseball in Baltimore.' wrote Sun reader Andrew S. Blumberg of Rodgers Forge. "Just as Brooks Robinson's artistry in the field and at bat inspired the remark that he must have been sent down from a higher league, Jim Bready's mix of wit, passion, drama and love for the game, as reflected in his singular prose, likewise proved he had no equal."
