These stories are like the stitching that holds the cover on a baseball. What happens at home sets up what happens out in the field. In Home Plate Was the Heart, batting practice trains characters for daily life with no off-season. How does the stitching affect the pitch? Will it hold? Even if you don't love the game, but blood binds you to someone who does, this book is for you.

- Brandon Cesmat author of Driven into the Shade, and When Pigs Fall & Other Stories.
