About This Item

Minneapolis: Coffee House Press, April 2014. Trade Paperback. First Edition / First Printing (stated). Fine. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Light wear to lower rear corner. Covers clean and bright. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 253 pages.

An alternative American history in which colonialism, jingoism, capitalism, and faith are represented by baseball. Personal and political, it twines Japanese internment camps with the Yankees; Walmart with the Kansas City Royals; and facial hair patterns with militarism, Guantanamo, and the modern security state. An essay, a miscellany, and a passionate unsettling of Josh Ostergaard's relationship with our national pastime, it allows for both the clover of a childhood outfield and the persistence of the game's service to those in power.
