About this title

Synopsis:

Nine all-star writers-including sherman Alexie, Lynda Barry, Bryan Di Salvatore, and Larry Colton-stretch the boundaries of America's Favorite pastime in this winning anthology.

Review:

This collection of essays by diverse writers (most of whom are from the Pacific Northwest) captures the whole baseball experience. Novelist Sherman Alexie reflects on his tortured Little League career on an Indian reservation, cartoonist Lynda Barry recalls Seattle's long-gone minor league park, essayist Robert Leo Heilman, author of Overstory: Zero, reports on an American Legion baseball tournament. In all, nine writers (of course) step up to the plate and hit 'em all over the park.
