Recommended Reading : A Midwest League Field Guide

MWLFieldGuideBookCover– Matt Nelson

New for 2009 is a book on the Midwest League that covers just about every corner of the league.

Dave Hoekstra’s “Cougars and Snappers and Loons (Oh My!) – A Midwest League Field Guide” is a compilation of stories written for the programs of the Kane County Cougars through the years. Hoekstra writes for the Chicago Sun-Times and his Cougar magazine column is called “The Glove Compartment.”

This book is easy to pick up and put down as it is comprised of 4-5 page stories. Many of them are on the Cougars, which isn’t surprising, but every team in the league is included.

A Midwest League Field Guide is really a great way to get a sense of the teams, communities, and personalities of the Midwest League. Personalities both past, and present.

I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to sit down and read great stories from througout this minor league!

The book is available here, from the publisher, Can’t Miss Press.
