Moonlight Graham

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

Perhaps like me, your favorite movie is “Field of Dreams.” Perhaps like me, you thought Moonlight Graham was a fictional character. He was not.

Brett Friedlander has written a book about him, called “Chasing Moonlight: The True Story of Field of Dreams’ Doc Graham.” Listen to an interview with the author here. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I can’t wait to have time to read the book!

Science Behind Baseball

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

Last Friday, Talk of the Nation had a program on the science behind baseball. Listen to the program here for a discussion about the effect of lowering the pitching mound and why we support our losing team. The guests include Dan Gordon, author of Your Brain on Cubs.

He says it’s okay, that I can’t help it. Also, my reading list will never get smaller.
