Memoir Monday...


K: A History of Baseball in Ten Pitches by Tyler Kepner... "traces the colorful stories and fascinating folklore behind the ten major pitches. Each chapter highlights a different pitch, from the blazing fastball to the fluttering knuckleball to the slippery spitball. Infusing every page with infectious passion for the game, Kepner brings readers inside the minds of combatants sixty feet, six inches apart.

Filled with priceless insights from many of the best pitchers in baseball history including twenty-two Hall of Famers--from Bob Gibson, Steve Carlton, and Nolan Ryan to Greg Maddux, Mariano Rivera, and Clayton Kershaw."

 I love baseball. When I read about this book, it just sounded like baseball. Those great stories behind the games, the plays... the pitches. With Father's Day just around the corner, this would definitely make a great gift for the guy in your life that enjoys the sport... AND those ladies that love the game too!  On my nightstand and planning on reading one story at a time inbetween other reading.
