For sports fans, Christmas Day is when John Feinstein releases a new book.
Thankfully with Feinstein, Christmas comes often.
Feinstein is unquestionably the greatest sports author of our time, and this week he releases his latest gem - a behind the scenes look into minor league baseball's International League. An absolute must-read for all sports fans. Even before you purchase my book (Well ok, right after that)
In his latest book, Where Nobody Knows Your Name: Life In the Minor Leagues of Baseball, Feinstein "introduces readers to nine unique men: three pitchers, three position players, two managers, and an umpire. Through their compelling stories, Feinstein pulls back the veil on a league that is chock-full of gifted baseball players, managers, and umpires who are all one moment away from getting called up—or back—to the majors."
I was a fan of Feinstein's work well before my time calling Army Basketball games. Feinstein spent the entire 1999 season with us in the Patriot League, writing The Last Amateurs: Playing for Glory and Honor in Division I College Basketball. It was uncanny how he captured the most touching, poignant and heartfelt moments from that Patriot League season. Plus he's a super guy (that gave me a personal tour of Duke's campus one afternoon.)
The great thing about John Feinstein's books is his knack for taking readers into the action and truly letting us experience sports behind the scenes. His latest baseball book will undoubtedly become his next grand slam.
