Historical Dictionary of Bowling (Historical Dictionaries of Sports)
₱ 10,407.00
Galleon
Loggats, kayles, quilles, skittles, half-bowl and ninepins were all early forms of games in which the goal was to knock down small standing objects from a distance by rolling or throwing another object at them. Archaeologists have found items from Egypt around 5200 B.C. that included small stone balls and narrow pins that were possibly used for a game. Additional research has disclosed that Polynesians played a similar game, using small elliptical balls and round flat stone disks, and, like modern-day bowling, a sixty-foot throwing distance. The Historical Dictionary of Bowling contains a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 500 cross-referenced entries on both male and female bowlers, amateur and professional, bowling coaches, writers and other contributors to the sport of bowling; descriptions and results of major tournaments and terminology of the sport.

East Lake Golf Club (Images of Sports)
₱ 1,848.00
Galleon
East Lake Golf Club was heralded as “one of the finest in the United States” when its first holes were completed in 1907. Bobby Jones called East Lake his home course, as did Alexa Stirling, Watts Gunn, and Charlie Yates. It flourished in the early 1900s as the Atlanta Athletic Club’s country club. However, as Atlanta’s population shifted to the northern suburbs, East Lake suffered, and in the mid-1960s the AAC sold the property and moved to Johns Creek. In the 1990s, developer Tom Cousins stepped in to restore East Lake. Today, the historical East Lake Golf Club is again considered among the finest courses in the United States and is host to tournament play. The motto adopted at its rebirth rings true: “Golf with a Purpose.”

Harper The Arm: Inside the Billion-Dollar Mystery of the Most Valuable Commodity in Sports
₱ 1,576.00
Galleon
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Every year, Major League Baseball spends more than $1.5 billion on pitchers—five times the salary of all NFL quarterbacks combined. Pitchers are the lifeblood of the sport, the ones who win championships, but today they face an epidemic unlike any baseball has ever seen. One tiny ligament in the elbow keeps snapping and sending teenagers and major leaguers alike to undergo surgery, an issue the baseball establishment ignored for decades. For three years, Jeff Passan, the lead baseball columnist for Yahoo Sports , has traveled the world to better understand the mechanics of the arm and its place in the sport’s past, present, and future. He got the inside story of how the Chicago Cubs decided to spend $155 million on one pitcher. He sat down for a rare interview with Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax, whose career ended at 30 because of an arm injury. He went to Japan to understand how another baseball-obsessed nation deals with this crisis. And he followed two major league pitchers as they returned from Tommy John surgery, the revolutionary procedure named for the former All-Star who first underwent it more than 40 years ago. Passan discovered a culture that struggles to prevent arm injuries and lacks the support for the changes necessary to do so. He explains that without a drastic shift in how baseball thinks about its talent, another generation of pitchers will fall prey to the same problem that vexes the current one. Equal parts medical thriller and cautionary tale, The Arm is a searing exploration of baseball’s most valuable commodity and the redemption that can be found in one fragile and mysterious limb.

56: Joe Dimaggio and the Last Magic Number in Sports
₱ 1,048.00
Galleon
Seventy baseball seasons ago, on a May afternoon at Yankee Stadium, Joe DiMaggio lined a hard single to left field. It was the quiet beginning to the most resonant baseball achievement of all time. Starting that day, the vaunted Yankee center fielder kept on hitting—at least one hit in game after game after game. In the summer of 1941, as Nazi forces moved relentlessly across Europe and young American men were drafted by the millions, it seemed only a matter of time before the U.S. went to war. The nation was apprehensive. Yet for two months in that tense summer, America was captivated by DiMaggio's astonishing hitting streak. In 56 , Kostya Kennedy tells the remarkable story of how the streak found its way into countless lives, from the Italian kitchens of Newark to the playgrounds of Queens to the San Francisco streets of North Beach; from the Oval Office of FDR to the Upper West Side apartment where Joe's first wife, Dorothy, the movie starlet, was expecting a child. In this crisp, evocative narrative, Joe DiMaggio emerges in a previously unseen light, a 26-year-old on the cusp of becoming an icon. He comes alive—a driven ballplayer, a mercurial star and a conflicted husband—as the tension and the scrutiny upon him build with each passing day. DiMaggio's achievement lives on as the greatest of sports records. Alongside the story of DiMaggio's dramatic quest, Kennedy deftly examines the peculiar nature of hitting streaks and with an incisive, modern-day perspective gets inside the number itself, as its sheer improbability heightens both the math and the magic of 56 games in a row.

Touchstone Dueling with Kings: High Stakes, Killer Sharks, and the Get-Rich Promise of Daily Fantasy Sports
₱ 1,604.00
Galleon
As Bringing Down the House did for card counters and Positively Fifth Street did for poker players, Dueling with Kings does for Daily Fantasy Sports fans in this leap down the rabbit hole of America's latest obsession. Daniel Barbarisi quits his job as the New York Yankees beat writer for The Wall Street Journal and begins a quest: to join the top one percent of Daily Fantasy Sports ("DFS") players, the so-called "sharks," and figure out whether DFS is on the level--while maybe cashing in along the way. DFS is fantasy sports on steroids. It's the domain of bitter rivals FanDuel and DraftKings, online juggernauts who turned a legal loophole into a billion-dollar industry by allowing sports fans bet piles of cash constructing fantasy teams. Yet as Barbarisi quickly realized, what should have been a fun companion to casual sports viewing was instead a ferocious environment infested with sharks, a top tier of pros wielding complex algorithms, drafting hundreds of lineups, and wagering six figures daily as they bludgeon unsuspecting amateur "fish." Barbarisi embeds himself inside the world of DFS, befriending and joining its rogue's gallery as he tries to beat them at their own game. In a work equal parts adventure and rigorously reported investigation, Barbarisi wades into this chaotic industry at the very moment its existence is threatened by lawmakers sick of its Wild West atmosphere and pushy advertising. All their money made FanDuel and DraftKings seem invincible; but, as Barbarisi reports, they made plenty of dubious--perhaps even scandalous--moves as they vied for market supremacy. In Dueling with Kings , Barbarisi uncovers the tumultuous inside story of DFS, all while capturing its peculiar cast of characters, from wide-eyed newly minted millionaires, to sun-starved math geeks, to bros living an endless frat party of keggers and Playboy Bunnies. Can he outwit them all and make it to the top?

Cheated: The UNC Scandal, the Education of Athletes, and the Future of Big-Time College Sports
₱ 1,821.00
Galleon
In 2010 allegations of an utterly corrupt academic system for student-athletes emerged from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus, home of the legendary Tar Heels. As the alma mater of Michael Jordan, Larry Brown, Marion Jones, Lawrence Taylor, Rashad McCants, and many others; winner of forty national championships in six different sports; and a partner in one of the best rivalries in sports, UNC–Chapel Hill is a world-famous colossus of college athletics. In the wake of the Wainstein report, however, the fallout from this scandal—and the continuing spotlight on the failings of college athletics—has made the school ground zero in the debate about how the $16 billion college sports industry operates. Written by UNC professor of history Jay Smith and UNC athletics department whistleblower Mary Willingham, Cheated exposes the fraudulent inner workings of this famous university. For decades these internal systems have allowed woefully underprepared basketball and football players to take fake courses and earn devalued degrees from one of the nation’s top universities while faculty and administrators looked the other way. In unbiased and carefully sourced detail, Cheated recounts the academic fraud in UNC’s athletics department, even as university leaders focused on minimizing the damage in order to keep the billion-dollar college sports revenue machine functioning. Smith and Willingham make an impassioned argument that the “student-athletes” in these programs are being cheated out of what, after all, is promised them in the first place: a college education.

The Supreme Court and the NCAA: The Case for Less Commercialism and More Due Process in College Sports
₱ 4,431.00
Galleon
Two Supreme Court decisions, NCAA v. Board of Regents (1984) and NCAA v. Tarkanian (1988), have shaped college sports by permitting the emergence of a supercharged commercial enterprise with high financial stakes for institutions and individuals, while failing to guarantee adequate procedural protections for persons charged with wrongdoing within that enterprise. Brian L. Porto examines the conditions that led to the cases, the reasoning behind the justices' rulings, and the consequences of those rulings. Arguing that commercialized college sports should be compatible with the goals of higher education and fair to all participants, Porto suggests that the remedy is a federal statute. His proposed College Sports Legal Reform Act would grant the NCAA a limited "educational exemption" from the antitrust laws, enabling it to enhance academic opportunities for athletes. The Act would also afford greater procedural protections to accused parties in NCAA disciplinary proceedings. Porto's prescription for reform in college sports makes a significant contribution to the debate about how best to address perennial problems in college sports such as cost containment, access to a meaningful education for athletes, and fairness in rule enforcement.

The History Press Whitewater Rafting on West Virginia's New & Gauley Rivers:: Come on In, the Water's Weird (Sports)
₱ 1,527.00
Galleon
A certain mixture of whimsy and derring-do is required to shove off down (or up) the New or Gauley River with scant protection aside from a helmet, life vest and one's compatriots. It's a choice that could be so easily avoided, but that wouldn't make sense to the proud and colorful characters who have long been shooting these rapids, some of the most popular and treacherous in the country. Here, Jay Young, a raft guide turned writer, leads readers through the local lore and history of the rivers, where--much to the delight of those brave enough to face these rapids--the ordinary almost never occurs.

On his watch, L.A. acquired the Rams from Cleveland, the Dodgers from Brooklyn, and the Lakers from Minneapolis. He covered them all while they won championships for the city. In The Steamer: Bud Furillo and the Golden Age of L.A. Sports , Furillo’s son, Andy, himself a longtime newspaperman, uses his father’s lens to give focus to the city’s rise as a sports empire.

How You Play the Game: Lessons for Life from the Billion-Dollar Business of Sports
₱ 1,608.00
Galleon
This is a story of passion and commitment and faith-qualities that drove one working-class kid to not only build a sports empire, but also to change the way the entire sports industry has done business. In How You Play the Game, Jerry Colangelo, in his own words, tells how he emerged from the tough streets of Chicago Heights as a high school and college sports star...how he helped create and build the Chicago Bulls-at a time when the NBA was a second-tier professional league, and two basketball teams had already failed in the Windy City...how he moved to Arizona and started the Phoenix Suns, an organization that fought its way to become the ninth richest franchise in all of sports...and how he then began baseball's newest team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. This is a tale of determination, faith, and, most assuredly, good timing and good luck. In truth, this isn't one story-but many. Jerry weaves together a lifetime of great moments in sports and tense times in business. Peppered with stories about players and coaches, including Charles Barkley and Connie Hawkins, Red Holzman, and Buck Showalter, as well as owners, general managers, investors, reporters, and more, How You Play the Game is truly an insider's look at the sports world. Mr. Colangelo's 30-year history mirrors the evolution of sports to the global marketing and media mega-industry it is today.

Harper Paperbacks The Arm: Inside the Billion-Dollar Mystery of the Most Valuable Commodity in Sports
₱ 952.00
Galleon
Yahoo’s lead baseball columnist offers an in-depth look at the most valuable commodity in sports—the pitching arm—and how its vulnerability to injury is hurting players and the game, from Little League to the majors. Every year, Major League Baseball spends more than $1.5 billion on pitchers—five times more than the salary of every NFL quarterback combined. Pitchers are the game’s lifeblood. Their import is exceeded only by their fragility. One tiny band of tissue in the elbow, the ulnar collateral ligament, is snapping at unprecedented rates, leaving current big league players vulnerable and the coming generation of baseball-playing children dreading the three scariest words in the sport: Tommy John surgery. Jeff Passan traveled the world for three years to explore in-depth the past, present, and future of the arm, and how its evolution left baseball struggling to wrangle its Tommy John surgery epidemic. He examined what compelled the Chicago Cubs to spend $155 million on one arm. He snagged a rare interview with Sandy Koufax, whose career was cut short by injury at thirty, and visited Japan to understand how another baseball-mad country treats its prized arms. And he followed two major league pitchers, Daniel Hudson and Todd Coffey, throughout their returns from Tommy John surgery. He exposes how the baseball establishment long ignored the rise in arm injuries and reveals how misplaced incentives across the sport stifle potential changes. Injuries to the UCL start as early as Little League. Without a drastic cultural shift, baseball will continue to lose hundreds of millions of dollars annually to damaged pitchers, and another generation of children will suffer the same problems that vex current players. Informative and hard-hitting, The Arm is essential reading for everyone who loves the game, wants to keep their children healthy, or relishes a look into how a large, complex institution can fail so spectacularly.

The History Press Minnesota Twins Baseball: Hardball History on the Prairie (Sports)
₱ 1,153.00
Galleon
For more than half a century, Minnesotans have been treated to the memorable players and teams of the Minnesota Twins. From the Ruthian blasts of Harmon Killebrew and Kirby Puckett to a successful brand of "small ball," the Twins have fielded competitive teams at Metropolitan Stadium, the Metrodome and Target Field. But prior to its arrival in 1961, the team also had a storied past in Washington that included Walter Johnson, the greatest pitcher of the Deadball Era, if not all time. Sports historian Stew Thornley highlights the lesser-known events in the club's history, from the area's attempts to lure a major-league team to town in the 1950s to then-owner Calvin Griffith's campaign to regionally rename the team. He also pays tribute to the rich heritage of baseball before the Twins, marked by minor-league teams such as the St. Paul Saints and Minneapolis Millers, which produced future Hall of Famers Willie Mays, Duke Snider, Ted Williams and Roy Campanella.

Sports Illustrated NFL Quarterback [QB]: The Greatest Position in Sports
₱ 1,826.00
Galleon
It may be true that defense wins championships, but it's quarterbacks who put their stamp on the NFL like no one else. The Mount Rushmore of the position would have to be a many-headed hydra to honor them all: preternaturally poised Joe Montana and gunslinging Brett Favre; cerebral Peyton Manning and athletic Steve Young; shaggy Joe Namath and crewcut Johnny Unitas; black-and-white pioneer Sammy Baugh and his high-def descendants, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and perhaps someday, Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck. Sports Illustrated celebrates these iconic figures and many more in a pro football compendium unlike any ever assembled. NFL QB examines every aspect of this storied position through original essays, classic prose from the magazine's rich archives and insights from Hall of Fame players, all set against the most striking photographs ever taken on the subject. Every record holder is represented and reevaluated. The big arms, the elusive scramblers, the two-minute magicians, the crossover cultural stars, even the notorious flameouts, are all showcased. This comprehensive tribute to the game's most essential position is a must-have for any NFL fan.

Backboard (Eric Lewis Sports)
₱ 1,307.00
Galleon
Eric Lewis and his football/basketball teammates get little rest between their championship season on the gridiron and the beginning of basketball season. But they would have it no other way. One challenge accomplished and another one on the horizon. The hoops team is full of returning starters which bodes well for the Comets. After a heart breaking defeat in the State Final a year ago the veteran Crater team is ready to take the final step and win their third State title in a row, following the baseball and football championship seasons. With last year's leading scorer now playing in college it will be Eric's task to pick up the scoring slack. He is surrounded by three other returning starters; the twin forwards, Thomas and Toby Hart-Zoller and point guard Luke Alwood. The new starter is 6' 7" junior center Robby Cowan. Three other letter winners will provide needed depth, and they will be bolstered by two promising sophomore athletes. Many people feel this squad might well be better than last season's runner-up group. Rumor has it Coach Edwards might be in his last season after a long and very successful career. If true, the entire team and fan base would like nothing better than to send him into retirement with a state championship.

Sports Books You Should Have if You are A Sports Enthusiasts in the Philippines

If you have a sport that you would like to know more about, books related to the sport are a useful resource for you to understand it better. Sports books are available in many forms, from pictorials of legendary moments throughout a sport’s history, biographies of sports legends, to in-depth analysis on the development of the sport to date. Unlike most sports magazines that cover a variety of topics – related or non-related to each other – in one issue, sports books are usually more topic-centred, discussing content that's relevant to the title of the book itself. Below is a list of sports books that sports enthusiasts should own, or at least read.

King of the World by David Remnick

Written by New York editor David Remnick, King of the World features the story of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali and America in the 60s. The book gives an in-depth look on Muhammad Ali’s life and his rise to become a legend in his own right. Remnick talks about that fateful night in 1964 when Muhammad Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) stepped into the ring with Sonny Liston and eventually became the new world heavyweight champion. Not only that, he accounts on how this enigmatic sportsman transformed America’s racial politics, popular culture, and the nation’s notion on heroism; a worthy tribute to one of the greatest athletes and dynamic personalities of our time.

Moneyball by Micheal Lewis

Moneyball gives a clinical and insightful analysis of how general manager Billy Beane utilised statistics and data to turn the fate of Oakland Athletics – an underfunded and unflavoured baseball team – into one of the best teams in baseball. Micheal Lewis writes about Beane’s uncanny ability to identify players who were disregarded by traditional scouting networks and making them into highly efficient performers. Lewis brilliantly turns this statistical and analytical piece into a gripping anecdote, making it into a suitable read for almost everyone. This book and the methods mentioned in it have been used by managers of football clubs to emulate Beane’s success.

The Secret Race by Tyler Hamilton & Daniel Coyle

Through The Secret Race, Daniel Coyle explicitly brings readers to unseen parts of the Tour de France and the methods used to ensure that they win at all costs. The book is written based on testimonies and confessions from professional cyclist Tyler Hamilton, revealing the dark and corrupted world of competitive cycling. Published just days before the USADA report confirmed the doping of Lance Armstrong’s cycling team, this book provides the most detailed account of what actually happened. Intricate details – names, places, doctors, methods – are revealed, enlightening readers about previously unknown secrets about competitive cycling.

A Life Too Short: The Tragedy of Robert Enke by Ronald Reng

Ronald Reng’s biography of former German goalkeeper Robert Enke transcends beyond just football; it also covers his family life, depression, and the internal angst of a group of people whom many perceived as invincible figures. This book highlights the highs and lows of Enke’s career and his life. It is one of the most heart-wrenching sports books of recent years, a reminder that no one is indestructible.
