    Based in part on the life of baseball legend Ty Cobb, this book belongs in the pantheon of great baseball novels. 
    John Barr is the kind of player who isn't supposed to exist anymore. An all-around superstar, he plays the game with a single-minded ferocity that makes his New York Mets team all but invincible. Yet Barr himself is a mystery with no past, no friends, no women, and no interests outside hitting a baseball as hard and as far as he can. Not even Ellie Jay, the jaded sportswriter who can out-think, out-drink, and out-write any man in the press box. She wants to think she admires Barr's skill on a ballfield, but suspects she might be in love with a man who isn't really there.  
    Barr leads the Mets to one championship after another. Then chaos arrives in the person of new manager Charli Stanzi, well-known psychopath. Under Stanzi's tutelage, the team simply falls apart. Then Barr himself inexplicably starts to unravel. For the first time in his life, his formidable skills fail him, and only Ellie Jay and another can help - if he will let them. Hanging in the balance are his sanity, the World Series, and true love.

    On April 18, 1981, a ball game sprang eternal. What began as a modestly attended minor-league game between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings became not only the longest ever played in baseball history, but something else entirely. The first pitch was thrown after dusk on Holy Saturday, and for the next eight hours, the night seemed to suspend its participants between their collective pasts and futures, between their collective sorrows and joys – the ballplayers; the umpires; Pawtucket's ejected manager, peering through a hole in the backstop; the sportswriters and broadcasters; a few stalwart fans shivering in the cold.With Bottom of the 33rd, celebrated New York Times journalist Dan Barry has written a lyrical meditation on small-town lives, minor-league dreams, and the elements of time and community that conspired one fateful night to produce a baseball game seemingly without end. Bottom of the 33rd captures the sport's essence: the purity of purpose, the crazy adherence to rules, the commitment of both players and fans.This genre-bending book, a reportorial triumph, portrays the myriad lives held in the night's unrelenting grip. Consider, for instance, the team owner determined to revivify a decrepit stadium, built atop a swampy bog, or the batboy approaching manhood, nervous and earnest, or the umpire with a new family and a new home, or the wives watching or waiting up, listening to a radio broadcast slip into giddy exhaustion. Consider the small city of Pawtucket itself, its ghosts and relics, and the players, two destined for the Hall of Fame (Cal Ripken and Wade Boggs), a few to play only briefly or forgettably in the big leagues, and the many stuck in minor-league purgatory, duty bound and loyal to the game.An unforgettable portrait of ambition and endurance, Bottom of the 33rd is the rare sports book that changes the way we perceive America's pastime, and America's past.A HarperAudio production.

    "Birmingham is probably the most thoroughly segregated city in the  United States.  Its ugly record of brutality is widely known.  Negroes  have experienced grossly unjust treatment in the courts.  There have  been more unsolved bombings in Negro homes and churches in Birmingham  than in any other city in the nation."   Martin Luther King, Jr.  Letter from a Birmingham Jail  1963Anybody  who is familiar with the Civil Rights movement knows that 1964 was a  pivotal year. And in Birmingham, Alabama - perhaps the epicenter of  racial conflict - the Barons amazingly started their season with an  integrated team. Johnny "Blue Moon" Odom, a talented pitcher  and Tommie Reynolds, an outfielder - both young black ballplayers with  dreams of playing someday in the big leagues, along with Bert  Campaneris, a dark-skinned shortstop from Cuba, all found themselves in  this simmering cauldron of a minor league town, all playing for Heywood  Sullivan, a white former major leaguer who grew up just down the road in  Dothan, Alabama. Colton traces the entire season, writing about  the extraordinary relationships among these players with Sullivan, and  Colton tells their story by capturing the essence of Birmingham and its  citizens during this tumultuous year. (The infamous Bull Connor, for  example, when not ordering blacks to be blasted by powerful water hoses,  is a fervent follower of the Barons and served as a long-time  broadcaster of their games.)  By all accounts, the racial jeers and taunts that  rained down upon these Birmingham players were much worse than anything  that Jackie Robinson ever endured.More than a story about  baseball, this is a true accounting of life in a different time and  clearly a different place. Seventeen years after Jackie Robinson had  broken the color line in the major leagues, Birmingham was exploding in  race riots....and now, they were going to have their very first  integrated sports team. This is a story that has never been told.
