Mark Delgado injects this mosaic of candid, insightful, and often humorous accounts with a casual, conversational feel that's always informative and revealing but never boring.
For everyone who ever dreamed of making their love of baseball into their vocation, Working at the Ballpark will provide a view at their lives that might have been, with interviews with more than 50 people who make a living in major league baseball. Each is asked the same questions: What is your job? How did you get into this line of work? What does this job mean to you? From peanut vendors and equipment managers to general managers and star players, from John Guilfoy, who sells sausages at Fenway, to Chris Hanson, who plays "Bernie Brewer" in Milwaukee, to Omar Vizquel, who anchors the infield at AT&T Park, this is an insider's perspective on the enormous scope of the game.

Excellent Read if you love the ENTIRE sport.
This is an excellent book that covers the entire sport of baseball. It connects the hot dog seller to the ball player to the manager. It was an interesting read and I would say a MUST read for the new baseball fan to the seasoned veteran of the game. I learned many things about the game and it was interesting to hear the stories behind the game. The neat thing about the book is you can start with any chapter! Read it!
