An Entertaining and Educational Book
I read a lot of sports books, especially baseball books. This is a fabulous read. Entertaining and educational. The author did a superb job of getting people to talk about working in major league baseball. A great cross-section of interesting people who talk in their own words about the baseball lifestyle. Also, I especially enjoyed reading Nolan Ryan's Foreword. Great job!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Best Baseball Book of the Year
Just finished this outstanding baseball book. Loved the format. Reminds me of books by Studs Terkel. Especially appreciate the candor of the players, coaches, and the umpire. Great stuff. Rarely do fans get a chance to go behind the scenes of a major league game. I enjoyed reading about the Cleveland Indians's clubhouse manager, the ticket hustler at Fenway Park, and Bernie Brewer, the Milwuakee mascot. I didn't know all the stuff that goes on with all these people who work in baseball.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
