Baseball girls

It’s almost March, which means it’s almost time for me to read a new (to me) baseball novel in time for Opening Day. (I elaborated on my longtime tradition here.) Here’s the deal: I’m in the midst of my special reading year, which means that I want to read a baseball book—nonfiction is okay, too, I suppose—by a woman. You all have been good with the suggestions in the past, so I’m asking again: Any book recommendations?

Put ‘em in the comments box or shoot me an email. I thank you in advance*.


*P.S. I’ve already read Karen Joy Fowler’s The Sweetheart Season, so no need to suggest that one.

  1. The Housekeeper and the Professor, by Yoko Ogawa. Not entirely about baseball, but it does play a prominent role.

    Crazy ’08 by Cait Murphy, it’s a fun, informative read.
