One of the best baseball books ever written, and a must read for any fan.
Kahn's bittersweet remembrance of the 1952-53 Brooklyn Dodgers and his late father is more than a baseball book, yet it's one of the best baseball books ever written.
Someday I will read this book again when it's been long enough so that it can feel like I'm reading it for the first time.
One of the best baseball books of all time!!! Highly Recommend this book if you are interested in baseball of the 50'sPublished 5 days ago by CrackerJack
The Boys of Summer is a classic baseball book for a reason. The introduction of Jackie Robinson and the team's reaction to the events that unfold is fascinating. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Nathaniel Robert Winters
