A Whole Lot of Bar-B-Q

An anthology of nine touching and funny stories by the editor of Spitball Magazine, and author of 16 baseball books. The book is filled with characters from all walks of life, all of whom are gripped, one way or another, by the force of that feeling so many of us have for baseball. Among the book's characters are a lottery winner whose dream of owning a baseball team turns into a nightmare; a lonely man who has a blind date among the Bleacher Bums at Wrigley Field; and appearances by Satchel Paige, Jackie Robinson, and the spirit of Pete Rose.
