    I encourage everyone who loves baseball and/or a great read to take a gander at “The Echoing Green” by Joshua Prager. It’s about the 1951 NY Giants and how they stole signs through an elaborate system. Definitely takes the lustre off the Shot Heard Round the World.

    As for the Field O’ Dreams, I went there a few years back with a friend of mine. A very cool place, nice little town. Hopefully, someone who wants to keep the field there will buy it.
