It Was More Than Just A Game... "Boys, be quick with the bat tonight and make sure you time his fastball when you are on deck because you know it is coming," Coach Wright instructed us as we sat nervously in the dugout, watching the Indians' star hurler warm-up, and waiting anxiously for the championship game to begin. It was an epic battle for city bragging rights that played out over two summer months, but the memories lasted much longer. For Alex Marks, the summer of 1991 brought with it his last season in Little League. At the time, it simply was the chance for he and his teammates to win one more title, while facing their greatest challenge. Little did he realize that afterward, his life would never be the same. Over two decades later, Marks' memories are as vibrant as the days themselves, and this memoir follows him reminiscing about a time when everything was simpler, when back doors were still left open, and when he was still blessed with the magic of childhood innocence. Readers, young and old, will enjoy this delightful journey chronicling two months of his adolescent life, where the lessons he learned and the character it forged still have relevance today.
