Book Club - The Love of Baseball
I picked this up a few months ago at Half Priced Books. It's a small format hardback with baseball anecdotes and lots of photos. It was published in 2007 so is reasonably up to date. The contributing writers were Paul Adomites, Robert Cassidy, Bruce Herman, Dan Schlossberg, and Saul Wisnia. None of these people ring any bells with me, but a quick search through Amazone indicates they've all written or have helped write other books on baseball. The book has 2-page (some text and a photo) on numerous baseball themes. It features individual players, ball parks, World Series games, Memorable Moments, some lists (like the Greatest Teams ever), and one baseball card - Mike Schmidt's rookie card. How can you go wrong? If you're the sort of person who likes to read in the bathroom, this would be a good choice.
