Keith: Pure Baseball

After reading over that Keith Hernandez had given a class on baseball (hat tip to MetsBlog) at Cornell Adult University in Port St. Lucie (Ivy League in FL … who knew?), I vaguely remembered that Keith had written a book on baseball a while back.

Here it is — Pure Baseball — and if you click on the link here or on the image to the right and buy it through Amazon, about 48 cents will go toward the server fees for this blog.

I have to admit, however, that I haven’t read this book yet but intend to soon. From what I understand, there is a part in the book where Keith recommends that when watching a game on TV, you mute the volume because most announcers will distract you with pointless comments (this book was written almost 15 years ago, before Keith went into the booth, ironically).

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
