Home Field: Writers Remember Baseball
by John Marshall (editor)
Baseball remembered by nine great writers – there’s community, there’s family, there’s heart. Sherman Alexie leaping from reservation Little League to women, race, and identity. Timothy Egan tells secrets of coaching girls’ Little League, including use of Doppler radar to scan for rain. Holly Morris describes how her women’s softball team, the Smellies, perfected the fine art of hooha. Lynda Barry shares a tale of a magical baseball glove laced with difficult memories of her father. Larry Colton, once a ‘can’t miss prospect’, recalls the hope and pain of his professional pitching debut, then watches a next-generation ‘can’t miss prospect’ make the same mistakes. And much more. Here is baseball without stats but full of life, played by local heroes and heroines on their home field.
