Great Baseball Reading  Jan 11, 2007
I enjoy the writing of Tom Verducci in Sports Illustrated, so I knew I wanted to get his book when it was published. I wasn't disappointed. The stories span generations and various aspects of the game and are wonderful to read.
A Great Variety of Baseball's Best Stories  Mar 19, 2006
Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated has treated us to a wide variety of his best baseball stories from 1993 to March of 2005. "The Left Arm of God" can only be about Sandy Koufax, the competitive fire of Jack Morris pitching game seven of the World Series for the Twins against the Braves, the stress of being a major league closer, the agony of the Red Sox and Cubs, the tragedy of Strawberry and Gooden with the Mets, the Red Sox winning it all in 2004, the nightmare that is steroids and why players didn't like to be slapped on the butt for doing a good job. These are a few of the subjects covered in the book, but the one I enjoyed the most was the last chapter when the author spent five days in spring training with the Toronto Blue Jays, and was confronted with the seemingly impossible task of hitting a baseball thrown by a professional player, even a non-roster one. Television does not do justice to the difficulty of deciding whether or not to swing at a pitch let alone hitting a round ball with a round bat square. Baseball has been blessed with great writers such as Roger Angell and Roger Kahn. It is comforting to know Tom Verducci is carrying on the tradition.
