Christmas and Hannukah are coming right up, and there's almost certainly a baseball fan in your life who could still use a gift to lift the spirit in these woeful economic days—perhaps even you! May we suggest, then, our very own Spalding's World Tour, a true tale of baseball and swashbuckling adventure set in the nineteenth century, that garnered near universal praise upon its publication. Now available in paper and hardback. No industry is in more dire need of support than publishing, and it wouldn't hurt the author either. Happy Holidays!
