Looking over the overlooked in baseball book news:
Tidewater Tides manager Ron Johnson gets a nice profile based on his inclusion in John Feinstein’s Where Nobody Knows Your Name, by John Feinstein.
Speaking of which, the Roanoke Times posted this review of the book.
Speaking of reviews, Philly.com posted this one on Jackie and Campy, by William Kashatus, a local author. Which is cool because Campanella is also a local product from Germantown.
Speaking of Germans…
Enough of that.
NJ.com published this review of Lawrence Hogan’s The Forgotten History of African-American Baseball.
Each week, the Sunday New York Times Magazine asks the musical question, “Who Made That?” This past issue, the topic was “The Relief Pitcher.”
The Magazine also carries a photo-essay feature. Two weeks ago, it was an unusual look at baseball made possible by mounting the cameras in odd places.
