‘The Rhythm Boys’ Cops Award


ForeWord Reviews named “The Rhythm Boys of Omaha Central” as its  gold medal winner in the adult non-fiction/sports category for books published in 2011.

At a ceremony June 23 at ALA’s Annual Conference in Anaheim, California, ForeWord named 209 Book of the Year Award winners in 54 categories. These books, representing the best independently published works from 2011, were selected by a panel of librarian and bookseller judges.

ForeWord Reviews, a journal dedicated to reviewing independently published books, was established in 1998 and serves as the flagship periodical of booksellers, librarians, agents, and publishing professionals who want to access the best titles from small presses.

Props to University of Nebraska Press for putting its reputation and credibility behind my book.

The Venerable Peter Gammons

Boston Globe sports media columnist Chad Finn called out Peter Gammons for calling out Bob Hohler for calling out the Red Sox.

Gammons and Hohler occupy two distinct schools of journalism.   Hohler comes from a background of hard news.  Gammons does not.  Gammons is out of his element in hard news, as was the case when he interviewed Alex Rodriguez about steroid use in February 2009, at least in the estimation of the ESPN ombudsman, who wrote:

“My own assessment is that Gammons asked the hard questions — Did you take steroids? For how long? Where did you get them? Did you lie to Katie Couric? — but that after getting Rodriguez’s opening admission of guilt, he did not press hard enough when Rodriguez gave evasive or self-serving answers to the what/where/when/why questions. I also think Gammons’ lack of follow-up was attributable, in large part, to his genuine sympathetic engagement in the human drama of what the viewer somewhat cynically called “Rodriguez’s first step toward personal redemption.”
