    Robert Whiting’s books on Japanese baseball are some darn tooting good books .I’ve been in a hurry to say darn tooting! I think there’s three or four of them. I read You Gotta have Wa and the one about Ichiro and both were exciting. Can I say that about a book? That’s the word that comes to mind for both of them.
