Batboy by Matthew McGough

Bat Boy

In 1991, 16 year old Matthew McGough took a long shot and wrote 15 letters to George Steinbrenner and other members of the New York Yankees management.  It paid off big when the following spring, he was sitting in the dugout at Yankee Stadium as it’s newest batboy.  McGough’s memoir is filled with all the exciting memories that most boys only dream of – and also shares many stories that helped to shape him into the man he is today.

There’s so much to love about this book.  It’s interesting, funny and a great coming of age story.  I highly recommend it!
