The Grind - Barry Svrluga

Baseball, as a sport, is a slog. In The Grind, The Washington Post’s Barry Svrluga looks at the mundanities that dot every level of the Washington Nationals organization, from players to scouts to spouses. It’s a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at professional baseball, and a rather intimate one at that—Svrluga’s sections about players’ families are particularly fascinating and nearly intrusive. The Grind is also, thankfully, relatively free of reverential platitudes that infect so much baseball writing. The Grind may apply to baseball, but not this book.
