Play Ball!

Can you hear it? The crack of ash on horsehide, that is. Can you smell the fresh-cut grass, the hot dogs roasting at the concession stands, and the neatsfoot oil being used to limber up new gloves? Not sure about that last one, actually. Do people still use neatsfoot oil?

Anyway, there's no surer sign that spring has sprung than the beginning of baseball season. Get in the spirit of our most timeless American sport with this collection of baseball books both old and new.
