Review: Ball Four

User Review  - Maureen - Goodreads

Enjoyed this book, particularly the first part that was the original version of the book. It was a nice little glimpse into a baseball clubhouse, and it was interesting to read about players I only ever knew as managers. Made me miss baseball. Read full review

I'm a huge fan of baseball books and am well aware of the significance of this book but for whatever reason I just could not get into this book. Just kind of a meandering, plodding pace. Read full review
