Baseball and the people who live and breathe it will seem closer and more vivid than ever.
Painting the Corners Again is Bob Weintraub's second marvelous collection of baseball stories. It goes directly to the core of what America's pastime does for us when we watch it being played on the field. Weintraub shows us that baseball has its heroes and its villains, and that they can reach into a person's life and remain a part of us for the rest of our days.
Told from various perspectives, Painting the Corners Again offers the personal experiences of the baseball player, manager, general manager, coach, scout, owner, writer, broadcaster, and fan. Each strives for its own sense of authenticity and is full of characters that we recognize and want to spend time with.
In this collection, the author digs beyond the statistics and numbers that sometimes dominate our view of a sport to get to the true humanity of baseball. W. P. Kinsella, author of Shoeless Joe (the novel on which Field of Dreams was based) says, Weintraub has executed a triple play: savvy baseball writing, unforgettable characters, and a home run ending for each tale."
