About the author: “A loony writer viewing the loonies of the human race…Besides loving movies, I also love baseball, so I began a Seattle Mariners blog,, the writing of which I find more enjoyable than writing film reviews, though watching movies is frequently more entertaining than watching the Mariners.”
From the dust cover: “How does a man, possibly a bit crazy, maybe just a country hick, but certainly loony, end up a star on vaudeville in 1911 while with the New York Giants?
That is what baseball fans and historians have been wondering.
Loonies in the Dugout takes a fictional look at what happened through the eyes of rookie Chet Koski who is not doing well on the field, or off the field, as he courts chorus girl, Eveleen Sullivan. He wonders about the nature of luck, coincidence, God, and the female loon.
