ANNOUNCEMENTS

DOLLAR SIGN ON THE MUSCLE RIDES AGAIN
Earlier this month, Sam Miller wrote a blog post about the baseball men
recorded in the nonfiction book Dollar Sign on the Muscle, which was ranked as
one of the top five baseball books by the Wall Street Journal. That inspired
us to try to bring back the out-of-print work by Kevin Kerrane, and now, we've
come to an agreement with the author to do just that. For more information,
see Dave Pease's blog post linked below.
