Meet the Author

Jeff Curtis lives a quiet life, as quiet as it can be with Amanda and Blake around anyway, in Layton, Utah. He is the father of four, and of course now you know that two of the four are children with Down syndrome. Although they don’t sneak away nearly as much as they used to, Jeff still spends most of his time worrying where Amanda and Blake are. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Along with his family, Jeff is passionate about baseball. He spent hours as a boy playing and watching the game. Back then there was no cable TV; the only game on television was the Saturday game of the week. Like many boys from that era, Jeff lived from Saturday to Saturday. In between games Jeff spent hours studying the baseball box scores in the local newspaper. When Blake first came to him he knew he wanted to instill that same passion for baseball in his newborn son.

Jeff wasn’t quite sure how. Sadly, with or without Down syndrome, reading the box scores in the paper has become something of a lost art. So Jeff did the only other thing he knew. He did his best to teach Blake the game first-hand. Each practice was different; every game was new. It took Jeff far too long to realize that he wasn’t the one doing the teaching. Blake was the teacher, and Blake made Jeff love the game even more. Blake taught his dad to understand The Rhythm of the Game.

    An amazing story masterfully told by the person who knows the story best. One of the most hear warming page turners I've read in a good long time. The only thing that makes the characters more endearing is that they are real people, described and chronicled by a father who knows them best.
