This book looks at the first such experiment, the players that played in the league and what went wrong. Pribble was a teacher who left his job to give professional baseball one last shot and in doing so was able to connect with his Jewish roots and spend an unforgettable summer in Israel.
The book was cool because you really get the behind the scenes stories. Its just as much about the game as it is the disaster that was the IBL. While reading it I could picture everything he was saying.
Definitely worth a read
