From the Paper:

"This next book I just love! It's a fantasy, which I like, but it's also about baseball, and I love that too. However, I never was any good at playing it. I haven't actually played it since, like, 9th or 10th grade PE, and I was just awful! Couldn't hit, couldn't field. I just used to get out there in the way outfield, and wander around looking stupid and hoping the ball wouldn't get near me. "
