Book jacket Where Nobody Knows Your NamePopular sports writer and author John Feinstein takes a look at an often-overlooked aspect of professional baseball in his new book, Where Nobody Knows Your Name: Life in the Minor Leagues of Baseball. By focusing on the experiences of "eight men out"-- from coaches and players to umpires and announcers--over the course of the 2012 season, Feinstein finally gives everyone down at the farm a fair shake. Each story is different, but the combined frustrations of the minors with the tantalizing promise of the big leagues weigh heavily upon each participant in this well-reported account.
