Excerpt at Eephus Mag

LARB (Los Angeles Review of Books) has a really neat sports channel: Eephus Mag. In addition to columns and interviews, they also run excerpts from time to time of sports writing that borders on the literary. They generously ran a chapter from The Night of the Virgin a few weeks ago: the “leg break” incident when Manny’s foolish young dreams clash with reality.
