Baseball's Comin' - EDIT: Contest over, results in post

Today's winner is Hannah -

Congrats, many thanks to all who entered. Look for a big big giveaway on Friday.

Great weather today, sun is shining, buds on the trees... Spring Training is in full swing, and real baseball is just around the corner.

I realize we don't talk much baseball here on FB, and that's a shame. It is a wonderful pastime, both to play and watch, and it lends itself easily to literature. If you know me, you know that I am a huge baseball fan, and love reading baseball books.

If you're like me, do yourself a favor and buy this book:

I found Emma's writing by way of the fantastic Bronx Banter, and if you enjoy baseball (and life's) little eccentricities, you are going to enjoy her work.

To celebrate Emma's book release, and the return of the Boys of Summer, let's have a giveaway:

9 Baseball Books (see what I did there?):

The Curse of the Bambino
Complete Armchair Book of Baseball
The Bronx Zoo
Bill Mazer's Amazin' Baseball Book
Summer of '49
Summer of '98
Eight Men Out
Ball Four

To enter, just leave a comment.
Winner will be announced today (3/16/10) at 3:00 PM EST.

Good luck!
