Read full description of the books:
From the #1 nationally bestselling author of A Good Walk Spoiled and A Season on the Brink...
John Feinstein is one of the most influential sportswriters of the last three decades. In his masterful new book, Where Nobody Knows Your Name, Feinstein delivers a fascinating account of the mysterious proving ground of America’s national pastime, pulling back the veil on the minor leagues of baseball.
Where Nobody Knows Your Name takes readers inside the gritty, no-frills, high-stakes world of Triple-A baseball, which serves simultaneously as a launching pad for superstar careers and as a crash-landing pad for stars who have fallen. Introducing us to eight men—two pitchers, three position players, two managers, and one umpire—Feinstein tells the riveting stories of those who are on the cusp of greatness . . . and those who have toiled and come so close, just waiting for the call from the big-league teams that will make their dreams a reality.
From Raleigh to Lehigh Valley, from Indianapolis to Pawtucket, Feinstein gets to the heart of the human stories in a uniquely compelling way, giving readers an intimate look at a baseball world not normally seen.
