Baseball is America’s pastime. No other sport has so captured our country’s spirit and loyalty throughout the ages. We see our shiny-faced heroes on the field, signing autographs, making unbelievable plays, and doing unthinkable athletic feats night after night. We see them beaming at press conferences (always well manicured), answering ‘yes ma’am, no ma’am,’ and never missing a beat. The players and heroes on the field are America’s champions. But… but are they really that way?
What about that one? Yes, look at that player over there. The one ogling down that woman’s blouse as she leans over to wipe her child’s mustard-painted face? That guy seems different. Or is he? Most baseball novels follow the standard method described in the opening paragraph. As readers, we never see the real men behind the façade. What if a novel existed for the Maxim crowd about baseball? What if we could see how things really are? Now we can…
Follow the always crude and crass Jack “Clutch” Thompson through a baseball season as he canoodles with monkey (women), plays pranks with his friends and teammates, and tries to break his own personal curse of only succeeding in clutch, pinch hit situations. Open up this novel and see how baseball players really are…
