"In a town without a movie theater or fast food restaurant, life is divided into three distinct seasons: football, basketball, and baseball."
In 1970, 11-year-old Andy Andrews and a group of friends began a Little League season they would never forget. All the usual ingredients were there⎯warming temperatures, freshly cut grass, and new uniforms. But the addition of a coach who was “new to the area” is what made this season truly unforgettable for young Andy.
Baseball, Boys, and Bad Words reveals the hilarity and magic of Little League baseball. Often called “the funniest tale ever told,” this story will have you laughing until you cry while warming your soul and reminding you of childhood and a simpler time of life.
Listen to the audio clip of Andy reading from the book below.
Who among us hasn’t had a Little League experience? Whether you’re a proud parent cheering from the bleachers or a former occupant of the dreaded right field, this little book will conjure fond memories, both old and new, for everyone!
Prepare to feel young again as you experience a story that will have you laughing until your sides hurt. Sit back, take a breath, and allow yourself to be transported back to the carefree wonder of childhood.
