Summary
Hitting into the Wind is a wonderfully fresh and continuously delightful book of stories. A minor-league ballplayer realizes he'll never make it; an umpire makes his toughest decision - that his marriage is on the rocks; a man fondly collects old baseballs; what really happened to Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn; a kid affectionately calls his Wiffle ball "JFK" until tragedy strikes; a man leaves his wife every morning to hit baseballs until his wife finally leaves him ..
