New bunch of baseball books covers the bases

Play ball! The baseball season is under way, and spring baseball titles are blossoming. There’s a lot to strike your fancy here: books on the 1954 and 1976 seasons; a biography of baseball’s most polarizing player not named Alex Rodriguez; a memoir by one of my favorite all-time Mets; an account of one of the greatest World Series ever; and George Will’s meditation on Wrigley Field, “A Nice Little Place on the North Side” (Crown Archetype, $25).
