"Jeff Polman's done it again. In BALL NUTS he's got the time machine funked up with shag carpeting, Naugahyde, and an 8-track tape player, and we're headed down to watch the Afro'd ballplayers in their ugly uniforms dish it out on turf. One of my favorite decades meets one of my favorite writers, and that's a combo that can't be beat."--Peter J. Schilling, author of The End of Baseball
"A novel of exuberant madness that re-imagines the 1977 baseball season as a magnet for a memorable gallery of souls unstuck in time, Jeff Polman's BALL NUTS provides a fresh, engaging meditation on the absurd and magnificent landscape of 1970s baseball, from Aase to Zeber and everything in between."--Josh Wilker, author of Cardboard Gods
"Polman transports us into a mind-bending baseball journey where time, space and sanity bend, as if in a Salvador Dali painting. If you like baseball fiction or the 1970s, BALL NUTS is in your wheelhouse. If you like the Strat-O-Matic board game, it's a grand slam home run!"--Scott Simkus, author of Outsider Baseball, The Weird World of Hardball on the Fringe
"BALL NUTS is exactly that--chock full of...well...nuts. C. Buzz Gip and his gang of misfits is to baseball and time travel what R.P. McMurphy was to basketball and fishing boats." --Mike Lynch, Seamheads.com
