Christmas Gifts 2010: Must Have Holiday Sports Gifts

Posted: Updated:

If you are shopping for yourself or another baseball fan this holiday season, there are two books you must have: The Batting Stance Guy: A love letter to Baseball, written by Gar Ryness (Batting Stance Guy) and Caleb Dewart, and Red Sox Fans Are from Mars, Yankees Fans Are from Uranus, written by Andy Wasif. Surprisingly, both authors graduated from Syracuse in '95.

Only once in awhile does a good baseball book come along. These two had me laughing so hard that I was crying!

The Batting Stance Guy delivers a Gary Sheffield Anger Chart and makes references to John Wockenfuss, Tsuyoshi Shinjo, Rod Carew, and Kevin Youkilis. Gar Ryness shows you a true art form that he cultivated from childhood. There is not a more certified person on the art of the stance.
