Editorial Reviews

“The one title I would recommend to anyone, male or female, love the game or hate it…[It] captures one day, one game, with such loving detail you can almost smell the stale beer on the concrete floor…If I wanted to recruit nonbelievers, I’d hand out A Day in the Bleachers the way Christians hand out New Testaments.”

Huffington Post, 3/6/12
“[An] absolute work of art.”
