    I have enjoyed the story very much. As a somewhat trivia baseball buff, I recognized the names from the early days. I clearly recall the Lajoie Cobb battle for the batting average championship.
    Your depiction of Cobb has been spot on. The description of Cobb sliding in spikes first on his first hit was true to form.
    I look forward to reading your chapters everyday, as you have cleverly woven multiple plot lines.

      Thank you for your kind remarks, John. It is always gratifying to receive such a positive and enthusiastic review from a reader—especially one who is a “trivia baseball buff.”
      Stay tuned. The best is yet to come! Best regards, Roland

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

    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!!
