Pre-Order “100 Things”

You’ve probably heard me hint that I had been working on and recently finished writing a book. I’m pleased to announce that you may now pre-order 100 Things Phillies Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die with an expected release of March 1, 2012. It should be available on most major websites such as Barnes & Noble, Overstock, and such. Here is a link to the book on Amazon, where you can save 32% with a $10.17 payment.

The book description from Amazon:

Compiling 130 years of the Phillies, this handbook offers dedicated information to fans of Philadelphia’s favorite baseball team. Topics covered include personalities, events, and facts that every fan should know without hesitation, such as important dates, player nicknames, and memorable moments. This guide to all things Phillies also includes a list of must-do Phillies-related activities, which include visiting the birthplace of Grover Clevelend Alexander, finding the best Phillies bars in the City of Brotherly Love, and searching for the remnants of the Baker Bowl.

The book is not centered around Sabermetrics and I tried not to make heavy use of them. As a result, it should be an enjoyable read for baseball fans of all backgrounds.

    I’ll ask them and let you know what I hear back.

    EDIT: Yes, there will be a Kindle version and do have them for all of the “100 Things” books.

    Just to clarify: the book doesn’t come out until March 1, 2012, so you’d be stuffing a stocking with a placeholder. 😛
