My Baseball Diary

A novel by

If you love the game of baseball, this book is a must read. If you're trying to understand the game, no more eloquent writer will take you by the hand. James Thomas Farrell's "Studs Lonigan" books are considered among the best of the 20th century. Like ESPN's 30 for 30 documentary series, Farrell's essays on baseball make great reading for anyone who loves great writing.

Farrell steps away from fiction in this out-of-print gem. Babe Ruth, Gehrig, Cobb and other baseball greats are here. Farrell saw them all and met many of them as a writer .

Baseball is a game of statistics and poetry. Farrell purely and eloquently wrote about his love of the game.

This book is an important piece of baseball history and an American sports writing classic. It's available for the first time as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smart phones.
