The Bottom Of The Ninth by Michael Shapiro

A Grand Slam Homerun!
The Bottom Of The Ninth is a wonderful book.  It tells the story of a group of men who tried and failed to start a new league called the Continental League to rival the American and National Leagues which was news to me.  It tells the story of Casey Stengel and goes in-depth on the 1960 World Series between Pittsburgh and New York.  The Bottom Of The Ninth is a well-written fast-paced book that includes fascinating behind the scenes information.  Any baseball fan will love this book!  Good job, Mr. Shapiro.  Lots of research went into this.
