Keith Olbermann, who I sometimes enjoy, says this is "One of the best baseball books ever written." Someone else, I can't remember who, says Hayhurst is the best writer in baseball. I beg to differ. It's not poorly written, but the writing just didn't do it for me. I like baseball, but I'm not a rabid fan. Maybe if, like Olbermann, I were, it might have made a difference. This was a free book: I received it as a first-reads win, for which I am grateful. Nonetheless, I recommend this book only for the real baseball fan. ( )
