Like the 68,000-pound bat in its title, this book offers a hefty new swing on America's Pastime. Former National Sportswriter of the Year Steve Rushin can't quite claim to be part of a baseball dynasty (his grandfather did play in one game of the 1926 World Series, but did not bat); he does, however, admit to a lifelong addiction to the Summer Game. He exhibits that devotion with a book crammed with stories about strange diamond memorabilia and stadium trivia, much of which will knot you in stitches deep into the night. Hilarious tales of peanuts, cracker jacks, and baseball bobbleheads; easily one of the most diverting books of the month.
