About this title

Synopsis:

In the summer of 1967, Cyrus Nygerski, nineteen and "the best left-handed second baseman in Wisconsin," unsuspectingly meets his first werewolf.
Six hours later, she is sitting next to him in Comiskey Park, watching the Red Sox play the White Sox on August 27th, but by the time Boston outfielder Jose Tartabull fires his famous, game-winning throw to home, the mysterious beauty is suddenly disappearing into the crowd. Nygerski is frantic. The next morning he reads about her in a Chicago paper, though not by name: there's no mention of Cassandra Paine-only of a vicious murder back in Beloit of a man who, in another version of events, appears to be very much alive and out for Nygerski's blood.
Among Cassandra's abilities is time travel. Nygerski learns of this later (or is it earlier?) on the seacoast of Maine where she introduces him to her family and the tantalizing legend of Howley's Deep Hole, a portal into an alternate time line that sweeps him to the heights of rookie season stardom. It's then-and at a terrifying cost-that he earns the nickname "Moon-dog." Even Cassandra can't foresee the prophecy in that.
Henry Garfield interweaves a classic Red Sox pennant race, the supernatural, a love and coming-of-age story, and a memorable cast of earthly and unearthly characters into a treat for baseball fans, horror buffs, devotees of science fiction, and lovers of suspense.

From the Author:

Tartabull's Throw is a baseball, werewolf, time-travel, coming-of-age love story set during the 1967 baseball season. It features a 19-year-old left-handed second baseman named Cyrus "Moondog" Nygerski, who appears as an adult in my first two novels, Moondog and Room 13. Tartabull's Throw is intended for both young adult and adult audiences.
