PRAISE FOR "BALLS"
JR. said . . .
“It Takes More
Than Balls is a unique and fun book that lends a whole new
perspective on our national pastime. Congratulations to Deidre and
Jackie for presenting the game in such a wonderful and informative way.
This book is a great tool and a good read for all baseball fans of any
". . . fun, easy-to-read and staggeringly informative. . ." MLB.com
"Sportswriters, editors and publishers of sports books may still
largely be men, but sports fans are just about equally becoming women. Silva
and Koney thought someone should speak to those women, someone who didn't
patronize. . .I think they're right."
". . . a grand slam of information and
entertainment. . ."

"...it is a guide to the intricacies and history
of the game that every woman should have, and frankly some men too...
It likely will go down as a keeper.
After all, it may be that death and taxes are the only certainties in life,
but mothers, sons, daughters, and Little League are next in line..."
