Into this mix come the team’s televangelist owner, her hardcore editor, a two-timing boyfriend, and an aging All-Star catcher who is becoming romantic.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The best baseball novel ever written…the funniest, raunchiest, and most compassionate baseball novel I’ve ever read.” Entertainment Weekly
“Squeeze Play will have you singing a rousing chorus of ‘Take Me Out to the Locker Room.’” People
“Does baseball mythology proud…The overall effect is that of a surreal parody, with a baseball team and newsroom that Mel Brooks might have assembled, where nobody and no activity is life-size, and where sex is a metaphor for baseball: You gotta play hurt.” New York Times Book Review
“Raunchy…authentic…this tale by a former sportswriter for the Washington Post will delight readers willing to accept a healthy dose of vulgarity with their humor, especially those who know and love the rhythms and complexities of the national pastime.”  Publishers Weekly
“Squeeze Play does for baseball what Semi-Tough did for football.” Washington Post Book World
“Anna Fields voices a sassy, plucky heroine full of moxie and good intentions. Fields is also…convincing with the cavalcade of oddballs, lowlifes, and boobs who occupy both locker room and the newsroom in Leavy’s rollicking satire.” AudioFile
“A funny, tender, true-to-life story of baseball, journalism, and war between the sexes.”  Library Journal
