A typically good collection of sports stories from 2016, selected by veteran writer/reporter Howard Bryant. He leans toward the serious topics in sports, which may lose the reader on a couple of long stories. However, most of the picks for the anthology are more than worthwhile.

Synopsis

“Excellent . . . A no‑brainer pickup for the sports collection.” —Booklist

For over twenty-five years, The Best American Sports Writing has built a solid reputation by showcasing the greatest sports journalism of the previous year, culled from hundreds of national, regional, and specialty print and digital publications. Each year, the series editor and guest editor curate a truly exceptional collection. The only shared traits among all these diverse styles, voices, and stories are the extraordinarily high caliber of writing and the pure passion they tap into that can only come from sports.
