Having just returned from my first baseball game of the year (the Mets vs. the Nationals), the American pastime is on my mind. Back in 2004 I posted a list of my favorite baseball books, and to this day Philip Roth's dark comedy The Great American Novel remains at the top of my list.
For a chance at winning this book and a $100 Threadless gift certificate, leave a comment with your favorite baseball book, movie, or player.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Philip Roth's novel The Great American Novel
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like Storytellers, The Best Channels Since 1465, Fahrenheit 451, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, and music-related t-shirts like Death Note, Funkalicious, Music Snob, or anything else that catches your fancy.
If you have already have this book or it doesn't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for them.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (April 26th).
