Reading Connie Mack and the Early History of Baseball. Absolutely fantastic. Not just a bio of Cornelius Alexander but a great history of the Athletics and the American League. Well-written and entertaining. After about 50 pages, I had to order the second volume, Connie mack: The Turbulent & Triumphant Years, 1915-1931. Highly recommended, but I wish it was footnoted, as I'd really like to check some of his sources.
I've tried 'em all, I really have, and the only church that truly feeds the soul, day in, day out, is the Church of Baseball.
