About this title

Synopsis:

Harvard has a reputation for turning out notable lawyers, doctors, politicians, and scientists—but not exactly for producing professional ballplayers. However, in the mid-1970s Rick Wolff transferred from this major leaguer of academia to baseball’s minors, playing for the Detroit Tigers organization. Thirty years later, his son followed in his footsteps: Harvard diploma in hand, he now plays for a minor league affiliate of the New York Mets. Baseball fans will enjoy the duo’s parallel adventures in the little-known world of boarding houses, horrible meals, long bus rides, and colorful coaches that make minor league baseball so popular and fascinating.

About the Author:

John Wolff played baseball for Harvard in college and was drafted by the Chicago White Sox, where he spent time playing for their minor league team. He lives in Armonk, NY

Rick Wolff played minor league baseball in the Detroit Tigers organization. His writing has appeared in Sports Illustrated, GQ, The New York Times, The Harvard Business Review, Psychology Today, and USA Today. He hosts "The Sports Edge" on WFAN radio in New York.
