Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Spring training is underway and baseball season is almost here! To celebrate, I'm diving into some baseball books, including one that I'm featuring for Teaser Tuesdays today - The Might-Have-Been by Joseph M. Schuster:
"In the first game, he had four hits in five at-bats against Tuscaloosa, two doubles, a triple and a bunt single in the ninth when he noticed the third baseman playing back on the outfield grass. From then on, he played what the sports columnist in the State Journal Register called 'inspired ball,' with a sureness that surprised him, seeing nuances in a pitcher's motion he hadn't noticed before, often having a sense of exactly where a pitch would go and how it would move - up, in, down, out - seeming to see it even before the pitcher released it as surely as if he were living a fifth of a second ahead of everyone else on the field" (pg. 4).
