Best sports books?
Anyone have some great sports books? Doesn’t matter what sport, just great reads that you think everyone should read

It was mentioned in another thread, but Among the Thugs is awesome too, if only partially about sports.

Play Their Hearts out is easily the best sports book I've ever read.

I enjoyed a few of John Feinstein's books years ago.

A Good Walk Spoiled
A Season On the Brink




For fiction, I read The Art Of Fielding a couple of years ago and it was decent.

Among the Thugs is a great read about English soccer hooligans.

Friday Night Lights is also really good.

I really liked this one. Used quite a bit by Ken Burns. A fun read.

Bloody Sundays by Mike Freeman. It's a little dated but good.

The Boys of Summer by Roger Kahn is great, especially if you like baseball.

Ball Four

Instant Replay

The Little Red Book of Golf Wisdom

The Book (for baseball stat nerds)

John Madden's books

And I'm a sucker for any sports autobiography.

Friday Night Lights is an amazing book, and the background for the movie and TV show.
