Confessions of a Baseball Purist: Whats Right--and Wrong--with Baseball, as Seen from the Best Seat in the House by Jon Miller, Mark Hyman

In Confessions of a Baseball Purist Jon Miller takes us on a journey into the heart of baseball as hes seen it from the best seat in the house. He brings to life the emotion of the night Cal Ripken broke Lou Gehrigs consecutive games played record, the history-soaked drama when the Giants and the Dodgers faced off in a crucial pennant-race series in September 97, Eddie Murrays fitting return to the Orioles to hit his 500th home run; and the day Edward Bennett Williams--then-owner of the Orioles--approved the plans for the creation of Camden Yards. But Jon doesnt shy away from pointing a finger at the darker forces at work in the game: the follies of radical realignment; excessive reliance on novelties such as widespread interleague play; and owners and general managers who cant make a move without discussing the economic ramifications, even though thats the last thing their fans want to hear about. True to the broadcasters art, Confessions of a Baseball Purist calls the game the way Jon Miller sees it: with wit, with style, and with absolute candor. For the baseball purist in all of us, Miller provides a rallying cry, some warm memories, and reasons to keep believing in the game we love.
