Publisher's Summary

Troubles begin for sports reporter A.B. Berkowitz when she is assigned to cover the Washington Senators, who are having a lousy season. When A.B. points out the team's ineptitude, the players refuse to talk to her, except to attempt to gross her out as often as possible. Into this mix come the team's televangelist owner, her hard-core editor, a two-timing boyfriend, and an aging All-Star catcher who is becoming romantic.


What the Critics Say

"Raunchy...authentic...this tale by a former sportswriter for the Washington Post will delight readers willing to accept a healthy dose of vulgarity with their humor, especially those who know and love the rhythms and complexities of the national pastime." (Publishers Weekly)
"A funny, tender, true-to-life story of baseball, journalism, and war between the sexes." (Library Journal)

A Blog before its time....

I stumbled on this book because I like the narrator. I read the reviews and almost didn't purchase it. It is actually quite good. The author's turn of a phrase is delightful. Its not a subject that I would normally relate to but it didn't take too long for me to get sucked into A.B.'s life. It reminded me of reading someone's blog. Anna Fields reads it with great skill and that adds to the entertainment value. If you like the written word (even when its read to you), you will appreciate Jayne Leavy's account. Is it sometimes a little crude? Yes. Is it appropriately crude and not for effect. Yes.

Lots of fun and some great characters

This was an engaging book with so many characters to love, hate, sneer at, and more. If you're a sports fan, it's even funner. So much happens to keep you going along in the story. You find yourself picking up lots of the dialogue and saying them to others cause it's so good. Would like to have a sequel to this book.
