“[Stacey May Fowles] left me spellbound. These essays take the reader on a rich journey. She writes with such passion, and challenges us to look beyond the stat sheet in order to drink deeply from a game that is so much more than the players who play it.”—R.A. Dickey, from his Foreword
“This is beautiful. Fowles has used her own experiences at the ballpark to reveal what each and every fan has felt but didn’t know why. She captures what we all love about the game.”—Buck Martinez, author of Change Up and the play-by-play announcer for the Toronto Blue Jays
“Fowles’s writing about her love of the game and the role of baseball in her life is honest, funny, touching, detailed, and charming. You do not need to be a sports fan or a baseball fan to enjoy this book; it is for anyone who appreciates beautiful writing, who has struggled to find their place in this world, or who has loved anything more than they can explain.”—Jessica Luther, author of Unsportsmanlike Conduct
“Stacey May Fowles has brought her unique, heartfelt, and smart voice to the public conversation about baseball. In doing so, she has made her mark on the sport. Her inspiration helps others feel more welcome and safe in joining a dialogue about baseball that has been exclusive and one-dimensional for far too long. I have learned much from her.”—John Lott, The Athletic
