Home, Away

Home, Away grew from my own experiences as a divorced father as well as dozens of interviews with divorced parents, both mothers and fathers.  It's also the culmination of a lifetime's passion for the great American sport of baseball, the timeless game that has helped weave more than a century and a half of legend and lore.
