501 Best Baseball Books

Two of my works are included in a Ron Kaplan book entitled 501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read Before They Die. One is entitled The Gigantic Book of Baseball Quotations (with an introduction by famed writer Roger Kahn). This book contains quotes from men ranging from Hall of Famers to the colorful, witty players who may not have been stars, but whose words have added much to baseball’s lore. Writers, star pitcher, hitters, managers– you name it, their words of wisdom, insight, and humor are all covered. (Skyhorse Publishing)

The other book which made the list is You’re the Umpire, also put out by Skyhorse. The version discussed in 501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read Before They Die has since been updated with new scenarios to test readers’ baseball knowledge. Real life situations covering easy, medium, and difficult rules are presented to the reader, making the plays really come to life.
