Courtney Morgan is a female knuckle-ball pitcher trying to break into professional baseball. Parker Westfall is an aging slugger with one last chance at the ultimate carrot—a spot on a major-league roster. She’s gorgeous, and he’s having the season of his life. Together, they’ll try to change a losing team’s fortunes on their way to the big show. But when tragedy strikes, will their dreams still matter?
The Fat Lady’s Low, Sad Song is a novel about baseball, with a touch of romance, that portrays what it means to be part of a team and part of a community in the heartbreaking world of minor league ball.
“Refreshing and real. Read it and weep for all of us who love the game of baseball beyond reason.” –Jean Hastings Ardell, co-author, Making My Pitch: A Woman’s Baseball Odyssey
