Baseball watching, listening, and reading recommendations

This is Michael from the Will Library. For anyone who is missing baseball, I have provided a list of e-books, e-movies, e-music, and one e-audiobook that are related to baseball. Hopefully, this will hold you over a little while before the baseball season commences. A few of my co-workers at the Will Library (Alan, Biagio, and Tina) helped me with this list. We may not all root for the same teams (3 Yankee fans and 1 Met fan), but we all root for baseball!
