Editorial Reviews

Doris Kearns
This is a magical book about a magical night. This beautifully told story captures baseball at its very best.
Jayson Stark
September 28, 2011. It was a night that will forever be frozen in baseball time. Somebody needed to write a book about that night. Thankfully, Paul Kocak volunteered for the job. And in this beautifully written book, he takes us not merely inside the astonishing ups and downs of this unforgettable evening, but inside the hearts and minds of ‘ordinary’ people -- the fans whose pulse rates haven't come down yet.
Chris Mallonee
A retelling unlike any other of the greatest night in baseball regular-season history.
Greg Tobin
With Baseball’s Starry Night, Paul Kocak captures an unforgettable moment in time in powerful, passionate prose that will bring fans to their feet all over again.
Len Berman
Paul Kocak hits an ‘inside the park homer.’ What a night!

    I believe Van Gogh would have cut out his eyes if he had to read

    I believe Van Gogh would have cut out his eyes if he had to read this book. This is little more than a blog masquerading as a book.
