adding to the chorus here, but if you don’t hate baseball (i happen to love it), and you like good writing, please please read ‘the art of fielding.’
bonus points if you went to a small liberal arts college. it will feel like home.
it’s one of the most enjoyable books i’ve read in a long time. 500 pages felt like nothing.
Seconding this. If you haven’t read Art of Fielding yet (and really, what are you waiting for?) buy it and read it ASAP. It is one of the best books I have read this year, and quite possibly one of the best books I have read in my lifetime.
