When I was a kid, there was a series of baseball themed novels I read. They were set in the oldtimey days and were really interesting. They really got me into reading at a young age. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of them though, and it’s driving me crazy.
Since then, I haven’t really read many baseball themed books. I’d really like to read some biographies of players like Mays, Derek Jeter, and Doc.
Next on my list is Where Nobody Knows Your Name: Life in the Minor Leagues of Baseball
I bet Jeter would have a good one. I just remembered I bought “Ball Four” by Jim Bouton (signed) earlier this year… It was a super controversial book apparently when it came out in the 70s. The Commish tried to get Bouton to sign a statement that it was all a lie and the Padres even burned a copy in the clubhouse lol.
