Baseball Life Advice: Loving the Game That Saved Me

Stacey May Fowles’s essays are about more than baseball. She writes with honesty and insight about living with anxiety and how loving something bigger than herself helps her through the worst. Fowles finds life lessons whenever she’s at the ballpark, whether she’s leaving work to go watch a potential perfect game or travelling to Florida for spring training. Covering what it’s like to be a female sports writer, how her husband was won over to the game, and why Toronto Blue Jay Josh Donaldson is everyone’s “dirtbag boyfriend,” Fowles delivers a passionate, heartfelt take on why sports matter to us—and why baseball in particular is a game of tiny miracles.
