Diamonds for Lori and Me: A Father, Daughter, and Baseball

Ralph Schoenstein, Author, Lori Schoenstein, Author Beech Tree Paperback Book $14.95 (174p) ISBN 978-0-688-07897-3
This warm and winning tale of the relationship between a father and a daughter strengthened by their mutual love for baseball and the Mets will delight parents and devotees of the national pastime. Schoenstein, who collaborated with Bill Cosby on Fatherhood and Time Flies , recalls his own days as an inept stickball player in New York and as an equally ineffective baseball player at summer camp, and tells of his joy when his youngest daughter at age 10 became an impassioned fan, her two older sisters having spurned the game. But Lori developed into more than a spectator, turning into a rather good player as well. The bond between Lori and her father is handled with a light touch but with an underlying affection that makes this a special contribution to diamond lore as well as to the literature about parents and children.
