Approaching Twi-Night

Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

Journeyman relief pitcher Jonathan “Ditch” Klein was all set to be a replacement player during the 1994-1995 baseball strike…until the strike ended. Offered a contract in the minor leagues, at the same Upstate NY ballpark he once found success in high school, Ditch has one last chance to prove his worth. But to whom? A manager with an axe to grind, a father second-guessing his pitching decisions, a local sportswriter hailing him as a hometown hero, a decade older than his teammates and trying to resurrect an injury-ridden career…Ditch thinks he may have a possible back-up plan: become a sportswriter himself. The only question is whether he is a pitcher who aspires to be a writer, or whether the reality is the other way around…

"Approaching Twi-Night really touched home, brought back so many great memories of my own experience as an owner and manager in minor league baseball. Most major league players will definitely be able to relate, from cramped bus rides to not having a lot of meal money, but just enjoying the game of baseball."

IndieReader

"This is baseball as personal quest, without an emphasis on glamour or personal wealth."

Kirkus Reviews

"...effectively conveys not only the mechanics of play, but also the psychology of pitching..An overall solid effort; readers will find that it's worth sticking around for the last pitch."

Readers' Favorite

"It's been some time since I sat and watched a baseball game, and longer still since I played, but despite that, the story of this pitcher and his teammates totally drew me in; it was just so compelling and real..."

Self-Publishing Review

"Approaching Twi-Night is literary fiction at its best...Apple is an elegant and understated writer, and Approaching Twi-Night isn't just a fine literary baseball novel, it's a lyrically rich novel about life, work, and family by a writer in command of his craft."
