Book DescriptionSkillfully edited by John McNally, Bottom of the Ninth: Great Contemporary Baseball Short Stories collects nineteen contemporary baseball short stories from a successful mix of well-established writers, lesser knowns, and a few up-and-comers. These stories are characterized by the same dramatic elements that draw people to the sport itself?the mythologizing of players, the obsessions and romance of the game, the bonds between players and fans, parents and children. From a key play, amissed catch, a chance lost, these are tales of characters facing high stakes and calls to action, metaphorically and literally, in the bottom of the ninth.
