The Infinite Inning podcast asks, "How do you progress through life when you can't get the third out?" Baseball's Brief Lives: Player Stories Inspired by the Infinite Inning explores that question by examining the lives and careers of 100 greats of the game in a series of biographical essays featuring stats, analysis, eyewitness reactions, and an awareness of the interconnectedness of baseball and the greater world that has always been a hallmark of Steven Goldman's writing. From celebrated athletes such as Henry Aaron, Pedro Martinez, and Pee Wee Reese to forgotten but no-less-memorable players like Bad Bill Dahlen, spinach-obsessed second baseman Ski Melillo, and worst-ever Yankees shortstop Pee-Wee Wanninger, Baseball's Brief Lives finds the sweet spot linking baseball and life itself in their equally marvelous complexities.
