I didn’t know there was such a thing as the Indie Baseball Bestseller List, but there is, via the American Bookseller Association, and The Cooperstown Casebook is on it. It’s published “In celebration of the Major League Baseball postseason,… based on sales at independent bookstores nationwide for the eight-week period ending October 1, 2017.”
The list goes 25 deep, and my book is at number seven among familiar names like Michael Lewis, Tom Verducci, Jeff Passan, Keith Law, Ben Lindbergh, Roger Angell (!), Marty Appel, and, via as-told-tos, ex-players such as David Ortiz, David Ross, Rick Ankiel and Chipper Jones. No doubt having Brooklyn’s Greenlight Bookstore to fulfill requests for signed, personalized copies is part of that, as is the IndieBound system. Thanks to everyone who chose to support their local independent bookstore in buying the Casebook.
