Book #1 - A Great and Glorious Game by A. Bartlett Giamatti

This is a small collection of essays from a former president of Yale and the seventh Commissioner of Major League Baseball. The writing is occasionally overblown, a little dated, sometimes repetitive (to be expected from a disparate collection of writings from different times for different purposes), but overall charming and delightful. It's apparent that he loved the game, and it's apparent that he was also a professor of comparative literature. Edited by David Halbertstam. Read 2-3 January, 2019. Fulfills Litsy Booked2019 reading challenge prompt: reminds me of my happy place.
