Up, Up, and Away: The Kid, the Hawk, Rock, Vladi, Pedro, le Grand Orange, Youppi!, the Crazy Business of Baseball, and the Ill-fated but Unforgettable Montreal Expos will be published by Random House Canada on March 29, 2014, coinciding with the 10-year anniversary of the Expos’ move out of Montreal and the 20-year anniversary of the 1994 strike. It is now available for pre-order in the U.S. and Canada.
His 2011 book, “The Extra 2%: How Wall Street Strategies Took a Major League Baseball Team from Worst to First” (ESPN Books/Ballantine), covers the Tampa Bay Rays, their journey from cellar dwellers to pennant winners and the methods they used to get there. The Extra 2% is a New York Times bestseller. You can order from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Powells, or your local independent bookstore.
