not only is this book about baseball, something i enjoy a lot, but it is written by one of my neighbors that lives on my floor. it looked like there was a tremendous amount of research involved in the book, and it makes me appreciate it more. the book is about players that never really had good careers in the major leagues, and it was really interesting to hear their stories.
