not just pitching books any baseball book…what are your favorites?
Ohmigosh, I have several bookshelves crammed full of baseball books that I read and re-read because I get something new and different out of each one. But let me list a few that I keep going back to again and again…
“The Long Season” and “Pennant Race” by Jim Brosnan
"The October Twelve" by Phil Rizzuto
"Modern Baseball Strategy" by Paul Richards
"The Gospel According to Casey"
