Description

Horror and Crime Fiction Author Armand Rosamilia loves baseball.

He grew up in a baseball family. He loves watching it. Studying it. Getting lost in it.

When his wife mentioned getting season tickets for the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, the Double-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins, he jumped on it.

And a nonfiction book idea was born. His love of baseball and a season of minor league baseball.

He not only breaks down the entire 2017 Jumbo Shrimp season but gives his own perspective as a fan and tells stories from his own past as a baseball fan... going to the infamous Pine Tar Game... being a diehard Red Sox fan... the 1993 World Series... Brooks Robinson's final game... collecting baseball cards and so much more!

Features interviews with Jumbo Shrimp staff and players, too:

"We want you to leave here and feel like you had a great affordable experience. You can go home with some money still in your wallet. That's a very important thing. It also hopefully makes you want to come back for more" - Ken Babby, owner of your Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp

"We were definitely expecting an increase in attention. The sales and the amount of repeat customers exceeded our expectations. I was blown away" - Noel Baha, Assistant GM

"What we're trying to do here in Jacksonville is help the Marlins win in Miami" - Roger Hoover, Director of Broadcasting

"You can't think about looking ahead because this game is tough. It has different ways of bringing you up and bringing you down. If you get on the field and give it everything the rest falls into place" - John Norwood, right field

"We have an advantage with the crowds we get. How loud this place gets when we have success and the other team doesn't" - Alex Yarbrough, infield

"I'm looking for an extra one percent from these players. One percent better per month. Everyone has different things they need to get a little better at. It's why we're here in the minor leagues" - Storm Davis, pitching coach and Jacksonville native
