Journal Entry 2 by wingmelydiawing at Rockville, Maryland USA on Friday, January 17, 2020
A collection of snarkily described facts and anecdotes, often quite funny but always very acerbic.  It's actually really fun to read in parts, but wow is there ever so much baseball.  So much!  Seriously, if you don't care about baseball, this book may be a bit of a slog at times.  But Proops does work hard to make baseball history entertaining to people who don't care about it, and succeeds to a certain extent.  I wish there had been more general history and less, say, movie recommendations, but all in all it was decently enjoyable.  Just not enough to, say, convince me to start listening to his podcast.
