Summary :

Edited by: Otto Penzler

A Little League benchwarmer who saw more time in the dugout than in the game suddenly dies of a rattlesnake bite. His team was getting ready for the game that would decide who would go to Williamsport for the Little League World Series. His coaches and managers were fiercely competetive. What happened?

A midget is hired by Bill Beeck as a pinch-hitter for his team. His presence in Major League Baseball becomes a source of confusion eventually leading to his banishment. Then he ends up dead. Who did it? And, why?

The perfect baseball dad ends up in a scrap with an abusive parent. Unfortunately he is in the government witness protection program, and about to testify against a huge mobster. He is warned to keep his nose clean or he will live the life of a pig farmer in Nebraska. Does he?

A pitcher is getting rich from extorting money from players. His pitch is lethal. His ruse - pay or take your chances at the plate. Everyone pays. Except one young batter. What happens to him?

A starving sports agent has the chance of a lifetime to sign a big contract for two of his players. Unfortunately, the wife of one player is having an affair with the other. And the betrayed player is no gentleman! The sports agent is desperate! If this affair blows up in everyone's faces, he's out of the money. Then the wife disappears. Where did she go?

The stories in Murderers' Row are filled with paradoxes, twists and turns. They will keep you riveted to each and every play, and each and every page.
