If every era gets the baseball books it deserves, "The Grind"is definitely one for ours. Svrluga reveals a culture of nonstop stress: a relentless rhythm of scouting odysseys, training routines, travel monotony, injuries all before anyone gets out on the field. No wonder these guys are obsessive. But they must also be undaunted. In our distracted, data-saturated age, grittier models of excelling would be hard to find. " The Atlantic" "" AT 162 GAMES, baseball has the sports world s longest season. Grueling. Thrilling. Routine. Lonely. Exhilarating. Major league ballplayers even have a name for this relentless, unmatchable rhythm: The Grind. In "The Grind," Barry Svrluga, "The Washington Post" s national baseball correspondent, zooms in on the 2014 Washington Nationals, reporting not just on the roster s star players, but also on the typically invisible supporting cast who each have their own sacrifices to make and schedules to keep. There s The Wife, who acts as a full-time mom, part-time real estate agent, occasional father, and all-hours dog walker; The 26th Man, a minor leaguer on the cusp of job security who gets called up to the majors only to be sent back down the very next week; The Reliever, one of the most mentally taxing, precarious, and terribly exposed positions on any pro squad. These and many more players, scouts, equipment managers, and even travel schedulers create the fabric of Svrluga s intimate and unusual book. In "The Grind," Barry Svrluga has given us an unforgettably raw, inside look at the wear and tear, the glory and impermanence, of America s pastime."
