About the Author
Emma Span has written about baseball for the Village Voice, Slate, the New York Press, and popular blogs like Bronx Banter, among many other publications; yet when she appeared on Jeopardy! in the fall of 2009, she missed an easy question about Mickey Mantle (claiming that “the buzzer timing was really tricky”). She graduated from Yale University in 2003 and now lives in Brooklyn. This is her first book.
