Non-Member: $13.00 / Member: $8.00. THE WAY OF BASEBALL: Finding Stillness at 95 MPH, Shawn Green: Two-time All-Star Shawn Green’s memorable Major League Baseball career spanned fourteen years and four teams. He’s one of the best-loved players in recent decades, known for signing autographs with a smile and tossing balls with kids in the stands. But his accolades and statistics are only half the story. In The Way of Baseball: Finding Stillness at 95 MPH, Shawn Green shares the lessons the game taught him about being present and attaining inner stillness—no matter what life throws at you. PITCHING IN THE PROMISED LAND: A Story of the First and Only Season in the Israel Baseball League, Aaron Pribble: It was the first (and last) season of professional baseball in Israel. Aaron Pribble had been out of Minor League Baseball for three years when, at his coach’s suggestion, he tried out for the newly formed Israel Baseball League. Pribble was the ideal candidate for the upstart league. His is a story of coming of age spiritually and athletically in one short season in the throes of romance, Middle Eastern politics, and the dreams of America’s pastime far, far afield from home. BASEBALL IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN: The Secret Early History of the Game, John Thorn: John Thorn, Major League Baseball’s official historian, examines the creation story of the game and finds it all to be a gigantic lie, not only the Doubleday legend, so long recognized with a wink and a nudge. Add bluff, bluster, and bravado, and toss in an illicit romance, an unknown son, a lost ball club, an epidemic scare and you have a baseball detective story like none ever written. Baseball in the Garden of Eden is a tale of good and evil, and the snake proves the most interesting character. (jasbro)
