Sweet and joyful, poignant and emotional, Home Field is a kind of baseball for the soul. More about the experience of having baseball in one's life than about the game itself, the book covers a diverse range of themes in stories like "The Warriors," an eloquent exploration of self, obsession, and adolescent baseball by writer Sherman Alexie, and "What Pop Fly Gave His Daughter," cartoonist Lynda Barry's take on how an absentee father kindles his daughter's love/hate relationship with baseball.
