Diamond Reading

by Shannen W. Coffin

Ironically, Rich, I was planning to nap, but my wife played the “I’m pregnant. Go to the grocery store” card. If you have never read David Halberstam’s Summer of 49, I suggest you read it. The ending stinks, for reasons similar to the 78 season, but it is a masterful work that really gets at the importance of the game at that time. In response to your dig, however, I just put in my early order for Blood Feud: The Red Sox, the Yankees and the Struggle of Good Versus Evil, by Bill Nowlin and Jim Prime. That ought to make me feel better after your post.
