DOLLAR SIGN ON THE MUSCLE RIDES AGAIN
Last 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.
