Tyler Kepner, the national baseball writer for The New York Times, has written a different kind of baseball history book. It’s called “K:  A History of Baseball in Ten Pitches,” from Doubleday.

In this new episode of "30 With Murti," we are joined by Kepner to talk about the stories behind the book, which traces baseball from Walter Johnson’s fastball to Sandy Koufax’s curveball to Mariano Rivera’s cutter. Stories about how pitches are passed down from one generation to another, to the mastery of such pitches that end up taking these men to highest reaches in the game.
