Re: Books on baseball
James Historical abstract
(Baseball readers really miss Bill James the writer. If you can get your hands on any of the stuff he was writing 15-20 years ago, you will probably still find his written voice entertaining. Nobody writes with that kind of voice now.)
Lords of the Realm
and Good Enough to Dream( the only Kahn book I really like)
I would also add "you gotta have wa" about the japaneese leagues. It's a bit dated now, but it's a good read.
If you've not read Moneyball, you probably should. Too many people have opinions about it without having read it or thought about it.
"Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me." Roy Tucker October 2010
