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:

"A memorable addition to the literature about the summer's game...A riveting mystery with a host of fascinating characters, a first-rate ghost story, and the tale of a quest that ends not with the object of desire, but with the realization of love. Kinsella has another hit on his hands. He's still batting one thousand."

-- the Detroit Press

"Freighted with mythical machinery, The Iowa Baseball Confederacy requires the leavening of some sprightly prose. Kinsella is equal to it. His love for baseball is evident in the lyrical descriptions of the game."

-- Chicago Tribune

"Whether or not you like baseball, read the Bible, play a musical instrument, like Indian folklore, time travel, or the Chicago Cubs, you will like The Iowa Baseball Confederacy."

-- USA Today
