Mark Twain once said, “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Raised in Upstate New York, Curt Smith loved reading, writing, history, and baseball. He followed Twain’s advice, becoming an authority on baseball broadcasting and politics.

A former Gannett reporter, The Saturday Evening Post senior editor, and speechwriter for President George H. W. Bush, Curt is the author of 18 books. They include Voices of The Game: The History of Baseball Broadcasting, recently included on Esquire’s list of “100 Greatest Baseball Books Ever Written”, and The Presidents and the Pastime: The History of Baseball and the White House, which let Curt fuse his twin loves. He believes that baseball and politics are similar: in the end, an observer knows who won, who lost and, for the most part, why.
