Stinson, David B. (Cover color photograph) Very good. , 331,  pages. Bibliography. Inscribed by author on title page. David B. Stinson, a former litigator for the U.S. Department of Justice, is a recovering lawyer. A long-time youth baseball coach, he did not learn to hit a curve ball until he was in his 40's. David is General Manager of the Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts which plays in the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League (a summer wooden bat league). He is also Assistant Baseball Analyst alongside Senior Baseball Analyst Austin Gisriel on Gordy's Sports World, WCBG 1380 AM, an ESPN Radio Affiliate in Greencastle, PA. Deadball is David's first novel. Deadball is the story of former minor-league baseball player Byron Bennett, who has a deep and spiritual connection to the game and its history. He sees things in a way others cannot and believes in things others would not. He thinks the old men working the menial jobs in the diners, dives, and graveyards he frequents are not what they seem. They try to fit in, go unnoticed, but Byron suspects they are not your typical second-career working stiffs. Part pilgrimage and part road trip, Deadball visits vanished ballparks like Baltimore's Union Park, Pittsburgh's Forbes Field, Cleveland's League Park, Detroit's Tiger Stadium, and Brooklyn's Ebbets Field. As visions of baseball's golden era appear around him with greater frequency and intensity, he must question everything he believes about life, himself, and the game he loves. Are the flickering images he sees real, or are they all in his head? His friends, his ex-wife, and his former teammates don't believe what he tells them he sees. At times, neither does he. Deadball will appeal to baseball fans and history buffs, but it also will appeal to anyone who knows what it means to be driven by a passion that others can neither appreciate nor understand.
