message 4: by David (new)

David Hi all, I've added quite a few baseball books to this list. Go through it if you get a chance and see if there are any others you've read to vote for.


message 5: by David (new)

David Biddle It's been a few years. Need to add Jeff Suppan's "The Arm" somewhere. I put it near the top of my list for sure. Excellent inside scoop.


message 6: by GA (new)

GA I would add The Beer & Whiskey League by David Nemec.


message 7: by David (new)

David Stephen King's Blockade Billy is on the list twice at 179 & 185.

It's an open list, anyone can add or vote for their favorites. :)


message 9: by Albert (new)

Albert Love this list! Hoping one day we can start a "21st Century Best Baseball Books" or better yet, "2010s Best Baseball" and "2020s Best Baseball" something like it soon, because a lot of really good books that came out the last 5-10 years get buried!

I suppose the only issue with getting down to the century or decade for a genre as specific as "baseball" is that there might not be enough momentum/interest from the wider Goodreads community
