Summary A passionate ode to baseball, its culture, and its community, which both celebrates and challenges the game - and reminds us why it really matters. What is it about a man hitting a small white ball with a slim wooden bat out of a park that's so beautiful' In this entertaining and thoughtful book, Stacey May Fowles gives us a refreshingly candid and personal perspective on subjects ranging from bat flips to bandwagoners, from the romance of spring training to the politics of booing, from the necessity of taking a hard look at players' injuries and mental health issues to finding solace at the ballpark. Fowles confronts head-on the stereotype that female fans lack real knowledge about the game, and calls out the "boys will be boys" attitude and its implications both on and off the field. She also offers exhilarating snapshots of the Toronto Blue Jays' 2015 and 2016 seasons. With remarkable humanity, intelligence, and an unabashed enthusiasm for the game, Fowles explores how we can use the lens of baseball to examine who we are. A must-read for both diehard and casual fans.
