Baseball: Read All About It

Baseball season is in full swing. If you’re a fan and watching your favorite team (go Brewers!) isn’t enough to satisfy your craving for baseball, check out one of the many baseball books in the library. Here are just a few of the many that are available.

  • Cooperstown Confidential: Heroes, Rogues, and the Inside Story of the Baseball Hall of Fame by Zev Chafets (browsing collection, 2nd floor, GV865.A1 .C37 2009) 
  • Baseball: a History of America’s Game by Benjamin G. Rader (main collection, 3rd floor, GV863.A1 R33 2002)
  • Playing America’s Game: Baseball, Latinos, and the Color Line by Adrian Burgos, Jr. (main collection, 3rd floor, GV863.A1 B844 2007)

Or if you’re in the mood for a baseball movie, check out Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, or Eight Men Out (browsing DVD’s, 2nd floor).

If you’re a history buff, you might enjoy looking at the Historical Baseball Resources from the Library of Congress. It’s an interesting collection of all things baseball.
