It’s holiday time and what’s more timely for baseball fans than a goo book, or some baseball cards, or anything else that can fit on a bookshelf, or perhaps more relevant, under a tree?
Another post about opening up some packs.
Nom, nom, nom. A tasty treat on Baltimore Baseball & Barbecue with Boog Powell: Stories from the Orioles’ Smokey Slugger. Powell actually looks slimmer on the cover than he did in his playing days.
I would love to see the kind of “books” agents put out to market their clients. This one, for example, on Yoenis Cespedes. According to a story in the New York Daily News,
has a cloth cover and is fit, perhaps, for a coffee table. It’s titled “52 Reviews” and it provides 52 — for Cespedes’ jersey number – testimonials from around baseball about the free agent’s blend of diamond skills.
And, according to someone who’s seen the book, it comes complete with a video player built into the front cover that shows five minutes or so worth of Cespedes’ highlights, which as any Met fan recalls, can be pretty spectacular stuff.
