Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now


A love letter to baseball, and the follow-up to last year’s runaway bestseller The Baseball 100

The Baseball 100 was a must-have look at 100 memorable baseball players. Joe Posnanski's new book, Why We Love Baseball, is equally essential reading, now about the game's top 50 moments.

Willie Mays’s catch. Babe Ruth’s called shot. Kirk Gibson’s limping home run.

Moments like these have been described again and again, and in Why We Love Baseball, they are looked at anew, told from unique perspectives. These are moments from the big and famous to the small and private; experienced by players, teammates, and fans; all of them fundamental to the connection fans have with the game they love.

These are fresh tales of legendary moments so powerful they almost feel like myth—takes that go to the heart of why we love the game we do.
