My longtime friend and former San Jose Mercury News and (later) MLB.com colleague Jim Street has a new book out looking back at life from the press box. My colleague and MLB.com blogger TR Sullivan just reviewed it for MLB.com and for our official MLB.com Books Blog. First, I want to make sure you see the review, so reblogging it here. Second, I want to make sure you know about our books blog. We launched it not just for MLB.com reviews, but also for YOUR reviews. If you want to review any baseball book on your MLB.com Blog, please just leave a comment here with the Permalink, and we may excerpt the top of the post on our books blog and reviewer name with link to the full review, as we did with this one. Happy reading and reviewing!
