In Men at Work:  The Craft of Baseball, his classic tribute to America's pastime -- re-released by HarperCollins Publishers with a new introduction -- Bradley Prize recipient, Pulitzer Prize-winning commentator, and lifelong sports enthusiast George F. Will travels from the baseball field to the dugout to the locker room to get to the root of the game we all love.

Will's book breaks down the sport to its four basic components:  managing, pitching, hitting, and fielding.  It analyzes the way four of its notables, manager Tony La Russa, pitcher Orel Hershiser, outfielder Tony Gwynn, and shortstop Cal Ripken, Jr., approach the game.

One of the most-acclaimed sports books ever written, Will's Men at Work is a revelatory, and often surprising, study of professional baseball.
