Product Details


“This is beautiful. Stacey has used her own experiences at the ballpark to reveal what each and every fan has felt but didn’t know why. She captures what we all love about the game.”
— Buck Martinez, author of Change Up and the play-by-play announcer for the Toronto Blue Jays
“Fowles’ writing about her love of the game and the role of baseball in her life is honest, funny, touching, detailed, and charming. You do not need to be a sports fan or a baseball fan to enjoy this book; it is for anyone who appreciates beautiful writing, who has struggled to find their place in this world, or who has loved anything more than they can explain.”
— Jessica Luther, author of Unsportsmanlike Conduct

“[Fowles] brings a perspective that’s all too rare.” — New York Times

“By bringing a fresh voice to an old, staid game, everything seems new again. . . . [Baseball] fans anywhere will relate to her love of the ballpark as her ‘favourite place in the world.'” — Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

“Stacey May Fowles left me spellbound. These essays take the reader on a rich journey. She writes with such passion, and challenges us to look beyond the stat sheet in order to drink deeply from a game that is so much more than the players who play it.” — R.A. Dickey, from his Foreword

“A sharp, affecting meditation of the game and what its wins, walk-offs, losses, errors, injuries and (rarely) fights say about life. . . . Stacey May Fowles says this game saved her, and Baseball Life Advice might just return the favour right back to you.” — National Post

“Fowles has penned an instant classic on the grand old game with the heart of a true fan.” — Post City

“I defy any baseball fan to pick up this book and not find something they can relate to. . . . She ultimately crafts one of the best books about the game I’ve read in years. Baseball has so much to teach us if we let it, and in Baseball Life Advice, Stacey May Fowles gives readers just a taste of what the sport can bring to an open heart.” —

“Fowles does an exceptional job of revealing how the game has made her whole, sharing incredibly personal insights and bringing topics to the table that deserve more light to be shed upon them, from a unique perspective. Mixing in the fun of spring training, the idea of the baseball gods and the power they hold, the magic of no-hitters and more, she opens the door to ideas to appeal to everyone. The book is one written for every fan.” — The Hardball Times
