The Book of the Week contest: Down to the Last Pitch

April 15, 2014

First of all, congratulations to Linda P. of Lindenhurst, IL, winner of last week’s book, Stars and Strikes: Baseball and America in the Bicentennial Summer of ’76, by Dan Epstein. Thank you all for your comments.

http://graphics.ink19.com/magazine/printReviews/012/012502-downToLastPitchCover.jpegThis week’s offering is the brand-spankin’ new Down to the Last Pitch: How the 1991 Minnesota Twins and Atlanta Braves Gave Us the Best World Series of All Time, by Tim Wendel. Who knows, maybe one day one of these books will make it into a revised edition of 501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read before They Die.

A reminder about the rules:

  1. The fifth person to post a comment on the sitenot as a “like” or comment on Facebook (although that’s greatly appreciated) or any other social media or via e-mail — wins. Comments do not have to pertain to the particular post you are currently reading but they do have to be related to the overall scope of the blog, please; no “My team’s great, your team sucks” nonsense. Y’all have been good about that. Keep it up.
  2. If you’ve won a book in the last three months — and you’ll know who you are — you can’t win again. Share the wealth. That doesn’t mean you can’t comment, though. Please do.
  3. Not mandatory, but I would appreciate the winners taking a picture of him- or herself with their giftee so I can post it on the blog. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
  4. That’s it. Simple enough, no?

Have at it.
