The book Chicken Soup for the Baseball Fan's Soul is a book about different players- like Dave Dravecky and Cal Ripken Jr. - and how they have learned more about the game of baseball and how the fans react to the players. It¿s also about a fans point of view. What they saw when they go to the games. If you are anybody who loves baseball, this is a book you should read. This book talks all the obstacles a baseball player must go through while he is playing the beloved sport of baseball. This book contains numerous quotes from various baseball players. For example ¿Anne, pitch one in to us,¿ from a story about Anne Carter, a fan from the book. Another quote is ¿I sat on the bench for the first in my life when I was called to the Baltimore Orioles,¿ from Cal Ripken Jr., a famous baseball player. Some of the baseball players that wrote stories in the book are: Cal Ripken Jr., Orel Hershiser, David Dravecky, and Mickey Mantle. Some of the fans that wrote stories about their opinions of the game are: Ralph Kiner, Dave Barry, Rick Reilly, and Anne Carter. This book ranges from Mickey Mantle to players who are still playing today. The stories in this book are true. The best thing the author did was to tell the stories the way the fans and players explained to him. A person I would like to be in this book is Babe Ruth. I would like Babe Ruth. It would be nice to know any kind of story about him. Its very easy to compare this book to other books. This is because the author of Chicken Soup for the Baseball Fan¿s Soul wrote a lot of other Chicken Soup books and they all have different stories. This book is not really a story, but about the feelings of actual players and fans. What¿s different about these authors is he gets different baseball players than other authors is they get different baseball players and fans whereas other authors just talk about one persons life. These authors didn¿t have any language of metaphor. He used a language which people could understand. For example people these days say ¿homer¿, he says ¿home run¿ so people can understand them. I read this book by reading a chapter a night.

This book is so great it tells you how wonderful baseball is to everyone. It is so inspirational especially if you haven't got that autograph or caught that baseball yet. I recommend this be the next book you read if you are a baseball fan.
