Read "Eight Men Out" by Eliot Asinof. And don't cop out by watching the movie (at least, not until after you've read it).

Great recommendations from Baby Fisk.

If you read the Asinof book, I would highly recommend also reading the William Cook book. I think together they offer a more balanced perspective.
