Baseball's familiarity makes it a great subject for American literature.

In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson tells us about two decorated, baseball-loving writers who passed away earlier this year.

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 editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
