Fans of the Southern League have seen it all since the circuit was founded 50 years ago: colorful characters, charming ballparks, and some of the best baseball players showing their potential. From Matt Moore and Cal Ripken, Jr. to Michael Jordan and Jose Canseco, Mark McCarter has seen them all and tells their stories with grace, humor, and style in Never a Bad Game: Fifty Years of the Southern League. McCarter, the award-winning columnist for the Huntsville Times and the Alabama Media Group, shares his tales of the Southern League, his beat since 1976. From chapters on can't-miss prospects like Cal Ripken, Jr. and Jose Canseco to the some of the most colorful players in the minors, like Joe Charboneau, including a host of the biggest names in baseball (Bo Jackson, Chipper Jones, and Derrek Lee), Never a Bad Game: Fifty Years of the Southern League is a fascinating account of the people who make baseball a unique part of the American scene. With a foreword by the Atlanta Braves' Craig Kimbrel, Never a Bad Game: Fifty Years of the Southern League is a must-read for any baseball fan.
