I've seen king at every Red Sox game in Boston... Is he writing a book on baseball? :-?


Actually, I did hear something about a book being written about the Sox and I do believe King is the author. I could be wrong, but I do believe that's the case.


Here ya go.

He picked a good season to follow.

King would be a great Cafe member. Somebody should shoot him an email and tell him about this place.

Thanks Mookie! ;-D Thought it was him, and I agree that King would be a great poster (in some sick and twisted way---but that's a compliment to his writing ;-) ).

Triumph and Tragedy in Mudville by Stephen Jay Gould is a great book
Road Swing by Steve Rushin is a good book
Like Red (sox) Book by Bill Lee isa really good book if your a sox fan

Went way back in the archives to bump this one I see. :-D

If you like baseball history, and especially the history of pitching, The Neyer James Guide to Pitchers is a great pick up. I'm just now getting around to it after I finished Three Nights in August, which is another one I'd highly recommend. ;-D

Anything by Crichton, basically, DeMille is good too. Try Plum Island. Its a fun read. For baseball related, Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy by Jane Leavy.[/i]

ted williams biography by leigh montville and 3 or 4 years ago there was a biography of joe dimaggio that was excellent and lastly Lords of the Realm is a must read to get a sense of the inside workings of baseball
