Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Gideon Clarke is out to prove to anyone who will listen, that the champion Chicago Cubs actually traveled to Onamta, Iowa, in the summer of 1908 for an exhibition game against the all-stars from the Iowa Baseball Confederacy that lasted 2,000 incredible innings in the rain. No one remembers but Gideon is determined to remind them....

Review:
"'The Iowa Baseball Confederacy' is not above the facile humor of anachronism or the stock time-travel irony of an ingenue's assertion: 'You can't live in the past.' But when imagination challenges mutability, no one ought to leave the ballpark early."

Steven G. Kollman, Commonweal, 07/11/1986

Review:
"With the audacity of a kid in a special-effects studio, Kinsella manipulates time and space until fact and fantasy merge in an absurd and mysterious mirage."

Saturday Night, August 1986
