Summary
"Of all the sports played across the globe, none has more curses, superstitions, or supernatural events [than] baseball, America's national pastime. While some of these can easily be explained, there are just as many that cannot. [This book] delves right into that superstition with short stories written by several key authors about baseball and the supernatural. Whether it's a frozen curveball, a robot pitcher, or fantasy outcomes (the Cubs winning the World Series!), these ... stories are ones that fans of science fiction will enjoy, while fans of baseball will find strangely believable"--
