A Baseball Almanac Favorite Read of 2021.

Did you ever wonder what your favorite ballplayer's childhood was like?

Just Like Me: When the Pros Played on the Sandlot is the first book in a series that tells the stories of pro ball players in the sandlot as kids...as told by the players themselves. What Park delivers is a collection of interviews with players about whether they were the best player on the team or simply the kid that could blow the biggest bubblegum bubble.

Stories of pickup games, of begging their parents for a brand new glove, of standing on deck when Mother Nature calls--this book is a reminder that these superstars were all of us at one time: just little leaguers with big dreams. Discover the same joys and heartaches that flooded your sandlot days in Just Like Me.

Players interviewed for this book include MLB Hall of Famers, Negro League players, All American Girls Professional Baseball League stars, and other fan favorites from Major League Baseball. Each player has recounted many amazing stories growing up playing baseball and softball, stories of amusing and impactful events that shaped both their adult life and professional baseball career.
