In his nonfiction books and teen novels, Washington Post and Sporting News columnist John Feinstein (A Good Walk Spoiled; A Season on the Brink) has again and again proven his ability to offer readers a human view of sports. Baseball's minor leagues, where many strive, but few succeed, seems tailor made for such a personal approach. Where Nobody Knows Your Name focuses on eight occupants of Triple-A, the highest rung before the majors, but also the arena where former stars make their last hurrah. Feinstein's subjects are not all players: Two are managers and one is an umpire; but the plights and promise of all these strivers strikes us as gripping.
