    Summer reading

    What are some baseball books on your summer reading list or what have you read in the past that you really enjoyed?

    Last night of the Yankee dynasty might be a bit old now but it's a really good read

    Recently I've read The Cubs Way, Giant Splash, A Head of the Curve, and currently reading Smart Baseball. I loved The Cubs Way.

    Others I'd recommend are The Yankee Years, The Captain, and Francona.

    Next up on my list are Pedro, Big Papi, The Phenomenon, The Kid, and Billy Martin.

    Last one I read was an biography on Mike "king" Kelly who was the first baseball star back in the 1800's.

    That book was a lot of fun.

    I'm currently reading ONE SHOT AT FOREVER by Chris Ballard. It's about the 1970-1971 Macon (Ill.) High School baseball team's improbable journey to the state championships led by an unorthodox coach.

    Good read (has the same feel at Seabiscuit and Boys in the Boat).
