      **Alabama Experience: Last of the Wooden Boats [APT]
      Sunday, August 27, 2006 at 12:30PM

      **Bookmark: Allen Barra [APT]
      Sunday, August 27, 2006 at 1:30PM
      Born in Birmingham, Allen Barra is best known for his own column in the
      Wall Street Journal. He also writes for Salon.com and occasionally for
      the Village Voice. He is a frequent contributor to the New York Times
      and is also heard regularly on Major League Baseball Radio. Allen Barra
      is like one of those passionate sports geeks who always have a copy of
      Total Baseball handy to lay a statistical foundation for their
      arguments, yet his sheer enthusiasm for the sport ensures he never
      lapses into the pedantic. While Allen's previous baseball book (Clearing
      the Bases) touched on a wide range of subjects, his latest collection of
      essays, Brushbacks and Knockdowns: The Greatest Baseball Debates of Two
      Centuries explores issues at much greater length.
