Baseball, Books and the History of the Game...

The manicured green grass...the players stretching and hitting the balls in the batting cages.. while a Phillies fan like myself will repeat this comment..."Maybe this is the Year!
And of course we get to see this Famous, Green Hall of Famer..The Philly Phanatic.

I could mention the names such as McCutchen, Nola, Hoskins, Franco and of course Harper. Of course the other players on the team are making a big difference as well..  And I am loving the handshakes of encouragement from the players.  But...this blog is not a sports commentary on a particular is an appreciation of the sport in a literary sense.

There are so many books that are written on the topic of Baseball.  From the players biographies, scoring, famous match ups and now Analytics.
