Baseball Lives

Mike Bryan, Author, Wendy Wolf, Editor Pantheon Books $19.95 (345p) ISBN 978-0-394-56467-8
Included in this book of 54 interviews are observations from Cubs star Andre Dawson, top relief pitcher Dennis Eckersley and Atlanta catcher Bruce Benedict, but the majority of the interviewees hold positions like batting practice pitcher, equipment manager, director of special events and building and grounds superintendent. One is a team owner. Among the most memorable pieces is an interview with Andy Strasberg, director of marketing for the San Diego Padres, about his career as Roger Maris's No. 1 fan. Virtually all of the selections are well worth reading for the light they throw on little-known aspects of the game. Bryan is coauthor of If at First . $50,000 ad/promo. (Apr.)
