  • A book about the 1983 Blue Sox by Roger Kahn.This is a wonderful book because it is not about a team you intrinsically know. This is not the story of the ‘55 Dodgers or the ‘61 Yankees or the ‘75 Reds or the ‘77 Yankees or the ‘87 Twins or ‘91 Twins or ‘92 Blue Jays or ‘93 Blue Jays.This is a story about a bunch of young guys who play baseball because they have the chance to be paid for the privilege. It is a chronological tale that covers the season that has fun, sadness, excite [...]



  • “I have lived variations of this moment, with authors, physicians, lawyers and bartenders. Layers of acquired, mannered sophistication fall away to passion when they talk of distant baseball dreams that failed.”Roger Kahn’s The Boys of Summer was published in 1972. Thirty years later, Sports Illustrated named it the second best sports book of all time, saying it was a baseball book “the same way Moby Dick is a fishing book no book is better at showing how sports is not just games.”A co [...]


  • I love books on the minor leagues, especially those that combine the stories of the baseball players with the stories of the team owners and operators. This is one of the best of the bunch. Kahn, a well-known baseball writer, buys into an independent minor league team in the Mohawk Valley of New York. There are plenty of story lines that come up here. Does the famous baseball writer know anything about running a club? Can the independent team stand up to the other teams affiliated with Major Lea [...]


  • The "Everyman steps into a brave new world and reports back to us" genre that I enjoy has another particularly effective installment. Already established as an effective chronicler of major-league grandeur Roger Kahn becomes an an active character as an owner in the low minors. If anything, his sharp perception combined with genial regard for those he studies improves in this setting. Even in the season of a baseball book binge running up the opening day, and having read it a scant two years ago [...]


  • A 3.5, rounded down for the lack of highlights. It's an interesting look at a single minor league season. Lots of great anecdotes and it builds an exciting atmosphere. But with a few exceptions (the author not really even among them), it refuses to go more than skin deep. It's unapologetically old school and Kahn seems to treat his own squad as the one exception to a universal decline is truly great baseball in America. It's got all the pieces, it just fails to elevate them beyond their independ [...]


  • This was an interesting look into the world of Minor League Baseball. As a big baseball fan, I would highly recommend it.





  • I will excuse the author for a few paragraphs of political incorrectness in this wonderfully personal account of one season as a minor league baseball team owner. This one might be better than The Boys of Summer.


  • This is one of those books you don't want to end! Mr. Kahn's book follows the 1983 season when he was owner and president of the Class A Utica Blue Sox in the New York-Penn League, a team that didn't even have a major league affiliation. "Utica and the season would bring us deep measures of pain and elation, humor and anger, and above all a sense of purpose," he writes. In Mr. Kahn's book, fortunately, there's equal measures of humor and angst.I'm familiar with upstate New York and loved reading [...]


  • BOTTOM OF THE 33rd and GOOD ENOUGH TO DREAM are two of the finest minor league books in existence, and, reading both within the same year, I understand the strange and wonderful world of the "farm team" so much better. I go to many minor league games each year, and I'm sure that GOOD ENOUGH TO DREAM will enhance my experience in the stands on the third base line. Roger Kahn's voice is so likeable, and as the story of the pennant race heats up, baseball lovers will not be able to put the book dow [...]


  • The 1983 Utica Blue Sox was an unaffiliated, independent team made up of cast off players from other teams affiliated with the major league; the Yankees, the Mets, the Phillies, the Red Sox etc. They faced a challenge of fielding a team of misfits with the worse field in the league, and the lowest budget. They were so strapped for funds that the bull pen was given only one ball to warm up a pitcher until it was pointed out that sometime two would be warming up at the same time.It is a story of s [...]


  • Roger Kahn is a great writer. I have now read three of his books and loved each of them. This one holds a special place in my heart, though, because it is about the minor league team in Utica, New York. I grew up outside of Utica, in Clinton, so I'm always delighted when I read about this area in a book. I was intrigued by the fact that all the other readers who have listed this book that I can see are men. Not that I mind being the only woman, but this is great writing!!! It's too bad that more [...]



  • The book is much better than just the page that has my name on it Seriously, it was good. Made me feel foolish for avoiding it my whole life!
