In his masterful new book, Where Nobody Knows Your Name, Feinstein delivers a fascinating account of the mysterious proving ground of America's national pastime, pulling back the veil on the minor leagues of baseball. Where Nobody Knows Your Name takes readers inside the gritty, no-frills, high-stakes world of Triple-A baseball, which serves simultaneously as a launching pad for superstar careers and as a crash-landing pad for stars who have fallen. Introducing us to eight men'two pitchers, three position players, two managers, and one umpire'Feinstein tells the riveting stories of those who are on the cusp of greatness . . . and those who have toiled and come so close, just waiting for the call from the big-league teams that will make their dreams a reality.
