‘Tis the season when authors start popping up on NP programs, and I hope to join their ranks this year.

Mike Piazza was on Fresh Air last week to discuss his memoir, Long Shot. You can read/listen here.

Robert Fitts, who was recently named winner of SABR’s prestigious Seymour Medal, was a guest on last week’s Only a Game to talk about Banzai Babe Ruth: Baseball, Espionage, and Assassination during the 1934 Tour of Japan. Listen/read here.

The previous week on OAG also featured Asian baseball as Samuel O. Regalado was the guest to chat about Nikkei Baseball: Japanese American Players from Immigration and Internment to the Major Leagues. Here ya go.

Every year there’s a “sleeper” book that comes out of nowhere and does better than anyone had a right to expect. Could Trading Bases: A Story About Wall Street, Gambling, and Baseball (Not Necessarily in That Order). Author Joe Peta was on The Brian Lehrer Show to talk about his process. Check it out here.
