Reviews

"Weintraub has executed a triple play: savvy baseball writing, unforgettable characters, and a home run ending for each tale." --W. P. Kinsella, author of Shoeless Joe "Great storytelling for fans and nonfans alike. Bob Weintraub has big-league talent." --Dan Shaughnessy, author of The Curse of the Bambino and columnist for the Boston Globe "The prevailing trend seems to be to reduce baseball to numbers, to take out the adjectives and hyperbole, eliminating the descriptions of facial tics and personal travails and sunsets, to treat the game as some algebraic problem stretched across a blackboard in the basement of stats guru Bill James or some other math junkie. I myself prefer my baseball with the imagination left in, thank you very much. This collection of deft stories by Robert Weintraub takes us back to the bleachers and locker rooms, to the people who actually play and watch the game. Very nice. Very nice, indeed." --Leigh Montville, New York Times bestselling author of The Big Bam: The Life and Times of Babe Ruth and Ted Williams: The Biography of an American Hero "Imaginative baseball stories for long rain delays and hot stove league nights." --Darryl Brock, author of If I Never Get Back and Two in the Field "Unique and wonderfully twisted." --Ed Asner, actor "These stories are as faithful to the spirit of a ball game as a box score, yet with all the color of a yarn told in a clubhouse during a rain delay." --Michael Coffey, author of 27 Men Out: Baseball's Perfect Games
