Some Baseball Short Stories

Vote 0 Votes

Following are three short stories about the Cubs which have been published, one in an annual collection gone belly up, two others in a magazine which is like pulling teeth to get back issues from, so I'm posting them here.

'The Greatest" was in Knight Literary Journal, and is about a fictional all-star game played between white and black big leaguers in the early Thirties. "A Bunch of Guys Named Marion" is the story of a little boy who lives and dies with the 1945 Cubs, and "Right Field Out--Part Two" describes sneaking into Wrigley Field. The last two were in Spitball.

If you like them, there are more. And if you don't like them, those other ones
will stay put ... But I hope you like them.
