Baseball Literature

Postby shortsavage » Tue Jan 11, 2005 4:41 pm

I am almost done reading Jim Collins' <u>The Last Best League</u>, a GREAT book on the NCAA Cape Cod Leagues.

<u>Moneyball</u> was on my Winter Break reading list last year.

Besides those two books, I am realitively unaware of solid baseball literature. I would love to hear any reccomendations on other good baseball literature, as I cannot imagine what I am going to do when I finish Collins' book later this week.

Thank you for your suggestions!

I don't think it was mentioned in the other thread and if you haven't read it already "Ball Four" is a great baseball book.

Cool. After reading reviews, I am going to find a way to read all of these books:

About 80% Luck by Gene Wojciechowski

Screwball by David Ferrell

The Natural by Bernard Malamud

Ball Four by Jim Bouton

Thanks for your help!
