I usually don't read sports fiction, but tried this one on the advice of a friend and wasn't disappointed. I like things to be the way they really are when reading fiction and this book delivers. I am a huge baseball fan and I reccommend Breaking Balls highly.

A fast and funny book. Very relistic and thought-provoking about baseball and life. The way Brett scuffs the baseball is pure genius.

Format: Paperback
This book reads like Jim Bouton's real-life diary of the major leagues. The problem is it's a fictional account and not all that enlightening or interesting.
