A Book of Walks by Bruce Bochy

The Giants’ recent championship seasons were filled with high-drama and “torture,” but the calm constant throughout was manager Bruce Bochy. How does he stay so even-keeled and composed? Bochy reflects on his zen-like approach to life in A Book of Walks, an irresistible collection of essays about the benefits of walking (the exercise, not base-on-balls). Giants fans will love getting a glimpse into the mind of the team’s beloved skipper (Bonus: the walks he writes about are often baseball-related or take place in San Francisco), but so will anyone who agrees that “a walk will do you good.”

Molina: The Story of the Father Who Raised an Unlikely Baseball Dynasty by Bengie Molina & Joan Ryan

It is incredibly hard to make it to the major leagues, and even harder to become a starting player. The odds of it happening to three siblings in the same family is rarer, still. But the Molinas are no ordinary family. In former Giants catcher Bengie Molina’s wonderful new book, we learn how the patriarch of his family, his father Benjamin, raised three sons who not only became big league catchers, but who each won two World Series rings. Benjamin, a poor Puerto Rican factory worker, had a passion for the game that was surpassed only by the love for his family. He taught his sons baseball, but through the game also taught them about humility, loyalty, and the true meaning of success. An absolutely moving and beautiful book.
