Review roundup, June 14

June 14, 2012 · 0 comments

JewishBaseballNews posted this review about Third Base For Life: A Memoir of Fathers, Sons, and Baseball, by Joshua Berkowitz. The book’s official website carries a few more reviews.

Speaking of Father’s Day, here’s a piece from the Deseret News on Trading Manny: How a Father and Son Learned to Love Baseball Again, bu Jim Gullo, and another from Bailey’s Baseball Book Reviews.

And to round out the theme, here are some notes regarding Major League Dads: Baseball’s Best Players Reflect on the Fathers Who Inspired Them to Love the Game, a collection of brief interviews with big league players (mostly active) reflecting on the father’s influences on them as they battled to make baseball a career. Sweet (although, to be blunt after reading the list of players included, not all of them could be realistically considered the games “best” players. Just sayin’.)  The reviews cited herein come from Publishers WeeklyBostonRedThoughts, BaseballReflections, NewYorkStateofSports, and Yardbarker.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
