Editorial Reviews

Review

"The author spent a year with the Phillies' scouts when they were arguably the best judges of raw talent in the major leagues. The often hard lives of baseball's underpaid hunter-gatherers are rendered in lively detail."—Sports Illustrated
(Sports Illustrated )

"A fascinating look at the world of the baseball scout . . . some of the best baseball tall tales you’ll ever read."—Wall Street Journal
(Wall Street Journal )

"The scouts who seek out major league prospects are like explorers, wandering the country’s amateur diamonds in the hope of finding a treasure—or a raw talent that can be turned into a treasure. A lot of what romance remains in baseball centers on this perennial quest, and Kerrane . . . captures it in this wonderfully affectionate book."—People
(People )

"This study [is] mesmerizing, for it deals with getting the most, pound-per-dollar, for the goods: young baseball flesh. . . . That baseball is a business has never been made so clear. Both narrative and characters are engaging, and Kerrane . . . writes with passionate clarity."—Library Journal
(Library Journal )

"One of the best baseball books to hit the shelves in recent memory . . . the story of the men behind the muscle mart . . . Kerrane scrutinizes this sometimes frantic, sometimes nostalgic, sometimes inspiring world. . . . For those in the stands, Dollar Sign offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at America’s national pastime."—Philadelphia Inquirer
(Philadelphia Inquirer )

"One of baseball literature’s most noble and enjoyable works."—Diamond Classics
(Diamond Classics )
