“Take me out to the ballgame!”
Baseball has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, from the background noise of the game on television, to my brother’s Little League games, to my sons’ time on the field with our local recreation leagues. My youngest used to tote around a chunky plastic bat and try and try to toss and hit a wiffle ball.
Baseball and summer seem to go hand-in-hand where we live–how about you?
I’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite baseball books that we’ve read through the years. Some are old classics, and some are fresh and new. Do you have a favorite that I’ve left off the list? Please share it with me in the comments.
