This week on Sports With Friends:

In the late 1970s, no book turned baseball on its ear more than the Bronx Zoo, written by then-current Yankee reliever Sparky Lyle. That book was co-written by longtime author and baseball historian Peter Golenbock. Golenbock has written more than sixty books, including ten New York Times best sellers. In addition to the Bronx Zoo, his best-selling books on baseball include Dynasty: The New York Yankees, 1949-1964; Bums: An Oral History of the Brooklyn Dodgers; Balls (with Graig Nettles); Amazin’: The Miraculous History of New York’s Most Beloved Baseball Team; Idiot: Beating “The Curse” and Enjoying the Game of Life (with Johnny Damon), and Valentine’s Way (With Bobby Valentine).

His newest book is called Whispers of the Gods is his newest book, where he relays his conversations with stars from baseball’s past, including Roger Maris and Ted Williams. In this episode, he continues to share his expert insights into what he considers the sport to still be America’s favorite pastime, especially during the current playoff season. Golenbock discusses the recent Aaron Judge home run chase, his belief that Barry Bonds is the true home run champion, and why he always rooted for an American League team.
