BOTTOM OF THE 33RD: HOPE AND REDEMPTION IN BASEBALL’S LONGEST GAME
, BY DAN BARRY
[Non-Fiction] “Getcha Beer heah!” For baseball’s longest game ever played, one would need more than just a beer. On April 18, 1981, Holy Saturday, just after dusk, the game between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings was underway. It played on and on into the night. What a good look into the lives of many people: umps, players, bat boys who carried on with the integrity of the game in the forefront. Enjoy this wonderful baseball book as our own baseball season is almost ending. Once reviewer writes: “…a pitch-perfect and seamless meditation on baseball and the human condition.”
