Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the remote, wintry reaches of Michigan's upper Peninsula, it's hard for a man to remember what springtime is like, let alone Spring Training. But when a former teammate tracks him down, erstwhile minor league player Alex McKnight is instantly transported back to the good old Toledo dugout, circa 1971. Unfortunately, Randy Wilkins didn't trek 3,000 miles to the bleak shores of lake superior to sit by the fire with a couple of imported beers, dissecting the past, inning by glorious inning. He's here to pitch a proposal: that Alex help him find the woman with whom he had a brief, passionate affair three decades ago. Who is Alex to deny a fellow the chance to ward off classic midlife chill by rekindling an old flame? What he doesn't consider is that there might be a good reason the mysterious, missing Maria is more elusive than a starting position in the majors--and that his trusted old pan might not have told him the whole score...

Synopsis:

Tracked by his former teammate to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Alex McKnight is instantly transported back to 1971 Toledo where he and Randy Wilkins played minor league baseball. Randy wants Alex to find the woman with whom he had a brief affair 30 years ago. Alex, however, doesn't consider that there may be a good reason why the mysterious Maria is very elusive. Martin's Press.
