This book requires an investment. Most books about baseball don’t. It is the first book by an author trained at the Iowa Writer’s Workshop who subsequently became an award winning author of books on science subjects. This one is densely written, having long wandering passages without natural breaks early on, then, like the baseball season it follows, the passages become more sure of themselves, more to the point, more sure of an ending, more climactic.

This book combines three of my favorite top
