The Best Baseball Book
on November 21, 1999
Pennant Race and its companion book, The Long Season, are the best baseball books ever written. I enjoyed Ball Four, written ten years after The Long Season, but it is a pale imitation. Brosnan's style and perspective are unique; his blend of candor and cynicism unmatched; his writing subtleties are brilliant. I have read hundreds of baseball books, and these two, which I basically consider one volume, are unequaled.
