    I recently read 3 new baseball books and wanted to share a review on them.

    Power Ball: Anatomy of a Modern Baseball Game Hardcover – by Rob Neyer

    It’s smart, fun and insightful. It’s one of the best baseball books that I have read this year and one of the better ones that I have read in a long time. You will want to read this one and have it be part of your baseball library. Have no reservations about it. Get this book!

    Baseball Cop : The Dark Side of America’s National Pastime – by Eddie Dominguez

    It’s not the smoothest story ever told. But, it’s an interesting read. For sure, it will show you a side of baseball that most don’t realize exists. And, it really helps the reader understand that people like Rob Manfred and A-Rod are sometimes really bad guys. I came away from this one convinced that baseball really doesn’t care about cleaning up the game – they just care about hiding their dirt and getting in front of it before it becomes public.

    The Story of Baseball: In 100 Photographs – by The Editors of Sports Illustrated

    Fun book. Obviously, lots of great pictures. I enjoyed flipping through the pages. Nice stories accompany the photos.
