Day 05 – A book that makes you happy
The Dead Pull Hitter by Alison Gordon
I love baseball. From spring training to post season if my team, The Toronto Blue Jays are playing I’ll be found in front of the television. When I was a little girl I dreamt of being a sports reporter, which felt to me to be a lofty goal. Yet it was Shawn Green who at the time played for the Toronto Blue Jays who told me, when I went to a Jays Kids Club even, that I could do anything.
It was Alison Gordon who enforced those words. She wrote about the Toronto Blue Jays. She wrote novels about the Toronto Titans, and these novels spurned me on.
And though I’m not a sports writer, and probably never will be, these books always bring me back to a time when I thought anything was possible.
