BASEBALL AND BOOKS
Sean Doolittle is used to getting attention on the pitcher's mound; he's credited with a save in the Washington National's 2019 World Series victory. But he's also a self-professed reading geek, and has been recently named the 'National Ambassador for Independent Bookstores'. While on the road for away games, Doolittle has made it a practice to seek out independent bookstores, and then share his visits on Twitter. Doolittle, an avid reader, particularly of science fiction and fantasy, commented to the Wall Street Journal "I want to support these places that are active in their communities, that are trying to be supportive and inclusive spaces for their communities."
