Overview

When author Ethan D. Bryan sent an email to W. P. Kinsella (author of Shoeless Joe and the basis for the film Field of Dreams) describing the scope and vision of his latest project, Kinsella replied in short time and form:

"I'm very distrustful of anyone who claims to hear voices. It is the fiction writer’s job to create weird characters, but I wouldn't want to know any of them in real life."

Journey with Ethan D. Bryan, a self-proclaimed real-life "weird character," in his quest to attend the Kansas City Royals' Fantasy Camp in Surprise, Arizona, and the unforeseen twists in the journey that led Ethan to take up a new cause: to raise money and awareness for High School baseball coach Howard Bell, a Springfield, Missouri legend recently diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).

A portion of all proceeds will be donated to Howard Bell's Striking Out ALS Charity.

Editorial Reviews

Robert Benson
I like baseball, my favorite stories are about baseball. I like to read people who can tell a story, the ones who get up every day and try to learn to tell a story better. I like stories that matter, because they teach us something about the way we are to live our lives. This meets all the criteria.
