Diamonds From The Dugout consists of 115 former major league baseball players sharing stories about the hits that meant the most to them.

While a pretty significant segment listed their first hit in the major leagues, many others mentioned hits from post-season games, All Star games, etc. Most of the players included in the book played in the 1970s or later – many fell in the time frame of the later 1990s and early 2000s, when my children were young and I didn’t follow baseball that closely.

I recommend Diamonds From The Dugout to all baseball fans. I rated it 4-stars on Goodreads – while it did bring back some fond memories of familiar players and taught me more about more recent ones, the author’s narrative because repetitive the deeper that I got into the book. I still enjoyed it, just not enough to give a higher rating.
