Ten best baseball books

Yankees fan and Christian Science Monitor book editor Marjorie Kehe came up with a ten best list of baseball books.

One title on her list:
The Natural, by Bernard Malamud.

It's almost impossible not to like this dark but poetic novel by Pulitzer Prize-winner Bernard Malamud about a naturally gifted baseball player who, outside the ballpark, proves only too human.
Read about the other titles on the list.

The Natural is one of Nicholas Dawidoff's five best baseball novels.
