So, inspired by adding a few books on Mickey Mantle in [MENTION=1995]dano7[/MENTION] 's Mantle thread, I went about digging out my book collection. Many of us love a good read about our favorite sport. Some books and authors are legendary, others can be more regional or compilations instead of a story about one person. Sometimes the best stores are about the people, with baseball merely the setting, not the point.
I often pick up books with the intent to read it someday. I get most at my library's book sale. (Every 3-4 months) I try to get ones that people have donated, rather than ones that the library has decommissioned. Garage sales work too.
So I'll start off with a few favorites and will add here and there. I hope others add pics of their own, and give recommendations of their favorites too.
I'll start with a Cardinals theme. Which means starting with Stan the Man, of course.
Here's a couple I picked up from the library sale.
I liked this book on Whitey Herzog because of the great stories he tells. A pretty below average player, but became a great manager (like a few others I'm sure you can name!)
Here's a local gem, published in the St. Louis area in 1976.
That's just a start. Let's see what you have!
