A year after its celebrated release in hardcover, Six Good Innings
is ready to meet the masses. The story of the joys, hardships and immense pressures of elite-level Little League baseball has made its national debut as a paperback.
What better time to re-connect with the book that explores the heart of the game? Run to the bookstore – or to your nearest computer keyboard – and get your copy of Six Good Innings, a work praised by Booklist as “a genuine feel-good saga, a fascinating, warm and decidedly entertaining look inside one branch of youth sports.”
Counted among Booklist's top ten sports books of 2009, Six Good Innings is Mark’s account of the summer he spent in Toms River, N.J., a place made world famous by the success of its past Little League champions. But that success comes with a price: Every new edition of Toms River All-Stars strains to reach the heights achieved by the teams that came before it.
From gripping start to warm finish, the book explores the culture of youth sports in America: the laughs, the tears, the great games, the well-meaning but overbearing parents, and — of course — the dream of winning it all at the Little League World Series.
Lauded for the commonality of its themes and concerns, Six Good Innings has been the subject of dozens of features and interviews, and has been taught and discussed in classrooms from elementary schools to universities. Get your copy today and join the national conversation!
