Baseball Bookshelf bits and pieces, Jan. 11

January 11, 2013 · 0 comments

Larry Ruttman, a fellow UNP author, is about to publish American Jews and America’s Game: Voices of a Growing Legacy in Baseball, a collection of interviews.

James Bailey, my main”competitor,” posted this abbreviated list of what he considers some classic of baseball fiction, include some obscure titles not associated with the superlative, wish as Season of the Owl, by Miles Wolff.

Speaking of obscure. SB Nation posted this “eBay item of the day”: The Phantom Shortstop, by Wilfrid McCormick, a 1966 novel. Seems a bit pricey at the current price of $20.69 (sale ends in less than three hours for you collectors out there).

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
