BATTER UP!

Four authors who are passionate about both writing and baseball will be at Mac's on Thursday, July 18th at 7 p.m.

Mike Faloon and Steve Reynolds have just published Fan Interference: A Collection of Baseball Rants and Reflections originally published in Zisk, the iconic baseball zine.  Contributors include Todd Taylor, John Shiffert, Ken Derr, Jake Austen, Nancy Golden and Brian Cogan. Mike and Steve will read from the collection and talk about the zine's history.

Scott Longert is the author of The Best They Could Be: How the Cleveland Indians Became the Kings of Baseball 1916-1920. The book covers the years in League Park when Ray Chapman, Tris Speaker, Jack Graney, Steve O'Neill, Stan Coveleski and the other early greats played for Cleveland. The book also details how World War I affected the game. Scott Longert is also the author of Addie Joss: King of the Pitchers about the Cleveland player whose brilliant career was cut short by tubercular meningitis.

Susan Petrone writes for ESPN.com (check out "No Jockstrap Required") and the It's Pronounced Lajaway blog about the Cleveland Indians. She is the author of the novel A Body at Rest and has had stories published in Glimmer Train, Whiskey Island, Conclave and other publications. She is working on a baseball themed novel.
