Book Hour: The Last Best League – One Summer, One Season, One Dream


Baseball’s Cape Cod League is steeped with history and wraps itself in the communities that support it. One out of six major leaguers have played in the Cape Cod League. This book captures just one season of the players, the small towns, the green fields, and the wonderful people who welcome the league into their lives. This is a tenth anniversary book so it provides wonderful retrospectives of the players who have made it to the Major Leagues and the many stories of those who walked away from the game. Jim Collins has written a magical book that explains the game, the personalities, and the hopes many of us must live vicariously.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
