We are at the time of year when summer tournaments are wrapping up and coaches and players alike are looking forward to some time off from the diamond. I know I always have trouble finding things to do that don't involve watching or coaching baseball and one can only take so many bogey-filled rounds of golf. So if you're looking for something to do that would still allow you to kick your feet up and relax poolside, you may want to check out a few of these titles. And yes, I have read each of these because legally, I cannot recommend them if I haven't.
