Books I liked...

Baseball Between the Numbers
Fantasyland
The Last Best League
Moneyball
Now I Can Die in Peace
The Teammates
Three Nights in August

Michael Chabon has a great fiction book called Summerland that involves a kid going to an alternate universe and basically having to save all universes by building a team to beat the villain at baseball.

I agree wholeheartedly with "Ball Four". I would also choose the following:

The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle and the End of America's Childhood
Summer of '49
October 1964
Game of Shadows
Moneyball
Beyond the Sixth Game (great book on the 70s Red Sox)
The Curse of the Bambino
Mind Game
Ty Cobb: A Biography
The Glory of Their Times

Many others, but those would be tops on my list.
