About the Book

Part sports journalism, part history, part memoir, this many-sided narrative follows one season with the Blue Devils of Moscow, Idaho—a rural American Legion baseball team. Showcasing baseball’s enduring place in American life, the author draws on the lore ofthe game, and conversations with diverse fans and players—an outdoorsman juggling his son’s game schedule with bear hunting; a bewildered German college student, holding a baseball for the first time; former St. Louis Cardinal pitcher and Yale baseball coach John Stuper; and the proud owner of a Derek Jeter jersey in Hokendauqua, Pennsylvania, to name a few.
