A digital cul-de-sac for baseball authors
amid a supervirus lockdown.
Max Gordon, with Authors Jacob and Dylan Kornhauser
A left-handed hitter at Oregon State, Max Gordon ended up staring down scarier opponents than the Pac 10 pitchers on the Beavers' schedule. Following the death of his brother Nick and injuries suffered in a car crash during high school that left him in a coma and had doctors telling him he'd never play ball again, Gordon went on a transformative personal journey. In this intimate narrative about the healing power of sports, a family is made whole again through the determination of a son who proves that, in life as in baseball, as long as you have one more at bat, you're still in the game. Authors Jacob and Dylan Kornhauser tell the story from the perspective of having shared relationships with the Gordon brothers. They are in conversation here with David Krell, author of 1962.
