I just picked up this book, Playing For Time: The Death Row All Stars.
A true story of an amateur baseball team organized by the prison warden in the early 1900's and composed of hardened death row inmates who get stays of execution as long as they play on the prison team and keep winning. Talk about playing the game of your life!
I'll let you know how it is. It should be a fairly quick read at about 100 pages.
Anyone else pick up an interesting baseball book lately? Other baseball reading suggestions welcomed here (except Moneyball
, been there done that).
