We’ve chosen these ten titles as a sampling of our modest Sports section which is a mixture of select new publications, staff favorites, biographies of sports figures, some “how-to” books, histories such as “The Boys in the Boat,” and narratives by participants and observers in a whole range of individual sports from rock climbing, running, swimming, boxing, fishing, to tennis, and of course, the major team sports of baseball, basketball, and football, soccer, and hockey.
Here is a favorite passage from an excellent book about baseball written by a Canadian philosophy professor:
"The thrill of witnessing something without flaw, a perfectly executed double play or leaping outfield catch reminds us of our own earth-bound reality, even as it suggests the heights which we humans are capable of reaching. There is no perfection without defect. I can’t do that, but somebody can."
Mark Kingwell, “Fail Better: Why Baseball Matters”
