Comments by the publisher

Although Larry Wenzel wrote two novels, traveled to Nicaragua in support of its revolution from the Somoza dictatorship, and taught philosophy to hundreds, he chose to be remembered as a baseball player. The former second baseman and line-drive hitter died January 2002, the year his favorite team -- the San Francisco Giants -- played in the World Series.
