Overview

Still Pitching is a coming-of-age story about growing up in New York in the 1950s. It details how a passion for baseball—a passion fueled by New York’s “golden age of baseball,” during which one of New York’s three baseball teams made it to the World Series for ten consecutive years—transformed the author from an introverted outsider into a popular high school pitcher. Readers will cringe at schoolyard slights, root for Mike to figure things out, rejoice in his triumphs, and above all, remember how confusing and exciting life is on the route to adulthood.
     Baseball makes everything possible. Steinberg’s love of the game fuels his first success as a writer and then teaches him about discipline, persistence, and hard work. As if by accident, Steinberg learns exactly the skills he needs to become a confident adult and subsequently learns to follow his passion to become a writer.
