Editorial Reviews

Erin Buzuvis
When author Paul Lonardo contacted me about his new book Strike IX, I worried I might be in for another misplaced Title-IX-is-the-enemy screed from an advocate for men's sports. But after reading a copy of the book, which Paul kindly sent me, I learned that Strike IX is the story of the athletes on the 1999 Providence College men's baseball team who went on to have the season of their lives after the college announced its decision to cut the program. Strike IX is a compelling underdog story.
Jess Coleman
In this stimulating account of pride and passion, Lonardo brilliantly ties together the motivated young stars who put together a historic, memorable season.

In a very unique account, Strike IX gives you the rare chance to see the effects of Title IX, and the emotional, avid relationships between the players of a historic team. It is yet another reminder that pride will triumph, even when your aspirations are dried to dust.
