Soliciting Baseball Book Recommendations

I have: (a) a Chapters gift card, and (b) several hours to burn between tomorrow's barbecue and the ball game. As I was too dumb to write them down, I'll have to plow back through the blogosphere in search of the books I had in mind to pick up. Feel free to leave a comment with your favorite baseball books.

I just finished Fantasyland by Sam Walker - great book about fantasy baseball.

Moneyball all the way. Before I read that book, I had no idea what the hell OPS even was.

Clare, thanks. I grabbed a preview on amazon.com and it looks really good.

Ian, I grabbed Moneyball the last time I had a long lag before a game. :D I agree, it was great.

I haven't read it, although it's on my list, but I've heard tremendous things about Ball Four.

Added to my to-read list. "Ball Four" looks like a must-read.
