Reading Baseball: Angels in the Outfield

Angels in the Outfield

The St. Louis Cardinals opened the season on April 7 with a 9-0 drubbing of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

In this edition of Reading Baseball, lifelong Pirates fan Pete Peterson says he was thankful he could forget about his team’s unimpressive debut by watching a classic baseball film.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, author of Growing Up With Clemente and the editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader, newly released in paperback.
