Episode 37 — Chapter 43

Chapter   43   “Mr. Cobb, could you pose in your batting stance?” Cobb gave a quizzical look. “In my civilian clothes?” “Yes, please.” The photographer took several photographs. “And now, if you could use the bat like a cane.” Cobb put the bat on the ground with...

Episode 36 — Chapters 41 & 42

Chapter   41  So, who is he really? Savannah pondered, taking a break from typing. Certainly not that angry, vile, despicable man. It was Savannah’s first day back in her office. She had spent the morning working on her article, assimilating random notes and...

Episode 35 — Chapter 40

Chapter   40   True to his word, as the next morning dawned Cobb insisted on performing work in exchange for room and board. Calvin did his best to keep his friend busy, allowing him to milk the cows, chop firewood and finish erecting a fence that had been in...

Chapter   39   When Dr. Cantril entered his office, there was a large stack of discs on the desk. Each disc had a stamp showing the location, date, start and end time. He first located the discs for the date of Cobb’s disappearance and inserted one that started...

Episode 33 — Chapter 38

Chapter   38  The sun broke through the clouds early the next morning, hinting at spring’s promise. The early morning dew melted as a mystical haze settled over the cotton farm. When he rose, Cobb was surprised to see a pair of baseball cleats and a...

Episode 32 — Chapter 37

Chapter   37   The couple of days turned into a week. Annabelle found herself feeling more at ease with Cobb each day. He displayed excellent manners and regularly offered to help, either setting the table, peeling potatoes or helping with the dishes. He soon...

Episode 31 — Chapter 36

Chapter   36   Annabelle had prepared a special dinner: honey-baked ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, fresh applesauce, black-eyed peas and cranberry sauce. After saying grace, the food was passed around and Annabelle began accepting compliments about her cooking....

Episode 29 — Chapters 33 & 34

Chapter   33  In the light of a full moon, Calvin Cain stood on his front porch, gazing at the rolling hills painted white. Most years, winters were mild in the western part of South Carolina; often there was no snowfall at all, but this year a thin layer of snow...

Episode 28 — Chapter 32

Chapter   32  Cobb nibbled on the food from his dinner tray, but his mind was elsewhere. He felt trepidation about leaving. After all, the hospital had been his only home during the last couple of months since the accident. There was also apprehension at...

Episode 27 — Chapter 31

Episode 26 — Chapter 30

Chapter   30  When she arose the following morning, Savannah was no longer congratulating herself on the brilliant opening paragraphs of her story. Instead, disquietude descended upon her as she pondered the plight of Mr. Cobb. What was Dr. Cantril’s agenda? ...

Episode 25 — Chapter 29

Chapter   29   For most of the evening Savannah sat squatted against the headboard of her bed, the laptop on her thighs, as she continued work on her story. It had been forty-five minutes since she had called room service, and she was ravenous. She was grateful...

Episode 24 — Chapter 28

Chapter   28  Savannah’s wardrobe the following day evolved from considerably more thought than her first visit. She wore an ankle-length, floral dress and nylons to conceal any skin on her lower legs. She quickly placed her hair in a bun on top—not her most...

Episode 23 — Chapter 27

Chapter   27   In my professional judgment, this patient is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia with delusions of grandeur combined with an extraordinarily rare time displacement syndrome. His delusion is impervious to external, irrefutable, contrary evidence....

Episode 22 — Chapter 26

Episode 21 — Chapter 25

Chapter   25  ‘Tis a shame, Savannah thought to herself. We’ll never know how old timers would fare against modern players. She had been engrossed in thought during the flight, imagining that the real Ty Cobb had been magically transported into the twenty-first...

Episode 20 — Chapter 24

Chapter   24  Mildly intrigued, Savannah looked at the screen. It showed an ancient photograph of Ty Cobb side-by-side with a mobile phone photo taken at a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. The resemblance was striking. So, what’s the catch? Savannah wondered. She...

Episode 19 — Chapter 23

Chapter   23   Dr. Cantril studied the file. A referral had been made to his office a couple of weeks before, but he had done little more than poke his head in the patient’s room. After all, until he could communicate with the patient, there really wasn’t much he...

Episode 18 — Chapters 21 & 22

Chapter   21  With great care, Dr. Hale began unwrapping the bandages from the patient’s face. Gradually, the forehead became bare, then the nose, mouth and chin. The tedious process lasted several minutes until Mr. Cobb’s face was completely exposed. Dr. Hale...

Episode 17 — Chapters 19 & 20

Chapter   19   The smell of alfalfa invades my nostrils. I knew I wasn’t too far away, once I came to the fork in the road. There it is!—I’ve found my way home, at last. But why is there so much smoke rising from the roof. Why is light flickering through the...

Episode 16 — Chapter 18

Chapter   18  By the time Savannah arrived in the boardroom, every chair in the conference room had been commandeered except for the editor’s spot at the far end of the table. She stood with three others in the rear of the room. Moments later, Spencer Shields...

    This book is very thrilling, I enjoy every second of the playing and action. I can’t wait to finish more!

    Excellent work! Rare that a historical book makes me want to turn the page to find out what happens next.

  3. superfan

    Loving it so far! Great description, great action, great insight into this player. Enjoy listening with my family!

    Looking forward to more!

    LOVING this book! My usual MO is to read a novel cover-to-cover in one sitting, so Baseball Immortal has me running to my computer first thing in the morning to read the daily chapter.
    Fun, colorful, clever, interesting, and compelling.

    I particularly enjoyed Episode 4 – Chapter 3. After a nail-biting, vivid description of the game, the scene between Ty and Charlie delightfully and tenderly gives a glimpse into what I’d like to imagine their relationship resembled during the early years of marriage.

    Can’t wait until tomorrow!!
