  • What is your favorite baseball book?

    Mine would have to be "Little League Heroes" by Joe Jackson. No doubt about it.

    Billy Martins autobiography. I always thought his horse story was pretty funny.

    Glory of their Times is my favorite though.
    "(Shoeless Joe Jackson's fall from grace is one of the real tragedies of baseball. I always thought he was more sinned against than sinning." -- Connie Mack

    "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

      Well this has got to be a spam message from looking at Slingers favorite baseball book.

        Followed closely by this...

        "Herman Franks to Sal Yvars to Bobby Thomson. Ralph Branca to Bobby Thomson to Helen Rita... cue Russ Hodges."

              It's a link to the book on Amazon.com. That's not necessarily spam.

                          If you didn't read Baseball Bonus Kid as a youth, then your childhood was lacking. I read it many times in 7th grade study hall.

                            The Original Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract advanced my knowledge of baseball history more than any other baseball book by far. I have both the hard copy and paper back editions. I actually bought the paperback edition around 1988-89 or so at my college book store. I bought the hard copy at a used book store about three years ago. I can't believe I've had the paperback edition for about a quarter century now. And my wife complains I am a pack rat.

                              The New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract and Glory of Their Times are easily my two favorite I've read so far. Both have taught me a lot about baseball history.
