Over the next year, there will be two, if not three, books to watch for relating to the St. Louis Cardinals.

More from St Louis Cardinals News

The Cardinals Way: How One Team Embraced Tradition and Moneyball at the Same Time is written by Howard Megdal and being published by Thomas Dunne Books. It is being described as “a revealing look from inside the St. Louis Cardinals showing how and why the club has emerged as the model, perennially successful organization in Major League Baseball through home growth and advanced metrics during an era of ever-escalating free agent wars.”

No release date has been announced yet but this is certainly going to be one of the books that will be found in Kindles or on bookcases of just about every St. Louis Cardinals fan by the end of 2015.

The Matheny Manifesto: A Young Manager’s Old-School Views on Success in Sports and Life by Cardinals manager Mike Matheny will be published on February 3, 2015. Fans may not agree with everything that the manager does on the field but they will certainly be interested in what the Cardinals manager has to say.

The third book might be published in 2015 or 2016. Pitch by Pitch, the working title, is the third baseball-related book that Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Gibson has written with Lonnie Wheeler. It is being described as “a breakdown of every pitch Gibson threw in his complete-game victory in Game 1 of the 1968 World Series.”
