The Bookshelf Conversation: Brian Kenny

July 18, 2016

Once in awhile a book will come along purporting to be “the next big thing” in how people perceive, discuss, and/or enjoy the national pastime. These are usually written by someone in the broadcasting industry, which makes sense. After all, these people have seen hundreds of games a year; who better to offer insight with no particular allegiance to a specific team or player?

Brian Kenny is one such person. A veteran broadcaster/analyst for the MLB Network, his new book Ahead of the Curve: Inside the Baseball Revolution offers an interesting examination of some of the flaws in the sport, both in recent years as time has changed the way the game is played and historically, when you really think about it.

I had a chance to talk with Kenny recently about some of his theories and how long he thought it might take for the baseball establishment to come around to his way of thinking.
