Roger Kahn, author of beloved baseball book ‘The Boys of Summer,’ dies at 92

“The Boys of Summer” was a story of lost youth, right down to its title, later borrowed for a hit Don Henley song about a man longing for his past. Kahn’s book moved back and forth between the early 1950s, when he covered the Dodgers for the New York Herald Tribune, and 20 years later, when some of the players were ailing (Jackie Robinson), embittered (Carl Furillo) or in a wheelchair (Roy Campanella).
