Reading Baseball: The Great American Read

Jun 8, 2018

A new PBS series highlights the power of reading through the prism of America's best-loved novels -- as chosen in a national survey.

In his latest edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson reviews the list and discusses why voters missed the boat by not including any books about America's national pastime.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard "Pete" Peterson, co-author, with his son, Stephen, of The Slide: Leyland, Bonds and the Star-Crossed Pittsburgh Pirates and the editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
