From the #1 nationally bestselling author of A Good Walk Spoiled and A Season on the Brink
John Feinstein is one of the most influential sportswriters of the last three decades. In his masterful new book, Where Nobody Knows Your Name,
Feinstein delivers a fascinating account of the mysterious proving
ground of America’s national pastime, pulling back the veil on the minor
leagues of baseball.
Where Nobody Knows Your Name takes
readers inside the gritty, no-frills, high-stakes world of Triple-A
baseball, which serves simultaneously as a launching pad for superstar
careers and as a crash-landing pad for stars who have fallen.
Introducing us to eight men—two pitchers, three position players, two
managers, and one umpire—Feinstein tells the riveting stories of those
who are on the cusp of greatness … and those who have toiled and
come so close, just waiting for the call from the big-league teams that
will make their dreams a reality.
From Raleigh to Lehigh Valley,
from Indianapolis to Pawtucket, Feinstein gets to the heart of the human
stories in a uniquely compelling way, giving readers an intimate look
at a baseball world not normally seen.
