Baseball Fever - Catch It!

As baseball's pennant races head into their final weeks, a few items for fans to consider about our national pastime.

2006 saw new biographies published about two of baseball's greatest players:

Babe Ruth with The Big Bam : the life and times of Babe Ruth by Leigh Montville and
Roberto Clemente with Clemente : the passion and grace of baseball's last hero by David Maraniss.

Another book, A great day in Cooperstown : the improbable birth of baseball's hall of fame by Jim Reisler deals with a place that I have visited twice and is a vacation must for all baseball fans, the baseball hall-of-fame.
