Cy Young: The Baseball Life and Career

Fans of baseball history and those interested in learning more about one of the most celebrated pitchers in baseball history will thoroughly enjoy.

Knuckleball: The History of the Unhittable Pitch

Freedman deftly weaves interviews and storytelling with career statistics to produce a cohesive and entertaining narrative. This book is great for baseball history aficionados who are looking for a different angle on America's pastime. The content and language is appropriate for all reading levels.

Football Stadiums: A Guide to Professional and Top College Stadiums

A nice compendium that conveniently brings together some arcane facts and particulars, this cross between a reference book and a pictorial work will appeal to hard-core football fans.

Clouds over the Goalpost: Gambling, Assassination, and the NFL in 1963

Lovers of football history will enjoy this book although it breaks no new ground in retelling some familiar stories.

Juan Marichal

If Marichal can be seen as a throwback, so can his autobiography, written with sportswriter Freedman (Going Yard: The Everything Home Run Book). After a short preface to each chapter by Freedman, we have Marichal in his own words—conversational, staying clear of the current focus on sex, drugs, and dishing on teammates and opposing players; his perspective is refreshing, but because of it and the simplicity of the narrative, this book may be most appropriate for a young adult audience. Not a home run, but a solid hit.
