Editorial Reviews


He’s baaack! Ninety years after his death Teddy Ballgame retakes center stage, swinging a bat for the Red Sox, flying jets for the Marines and swearing up a blue streak. If you like baseball, science fiction, or a good thriller, ExtraInnings is the book for you. It is Shoeless Joe Hardy meets Isaac Asimov. No need to wait to see if the science of cryonics will bring Ted Williams back to life. Bruce Spitzer already has.”
Dick Flavin, Poet Laureate of the Boston Red Sox, featured with Ted Williams in David Halberstam’s best-selling book The Teammates

Over the years, many people have wondered just how much greater Ted Williams would have been if hewere not called away to war, or if he had playedin another era. Now, thanks to Bruce Spitzer, we know.”
Jim Lonborg, Cy Young Award-winning Red Sox pitcher and member of the 1967 “Dream Team”

I knew Ted Williams, Ted Williams was a friend of mine—this is Ted Williams.”
Bob Lobel, Boston sportscaster who once interviewed Ted Williams, Larry Bird, and Bobby Orr together in the same studio

“Bruce Spitzer has reverse-engineered the brain of Ted Williams, reanimated a great American, and created a novel with memories intact.”
Ray Kurzweil, inventor/author/futurist

“Ooh-rah! for Extra Innings, and boy what a ride. Ted Williams needed no more heroics to add to his service record flying in WWII and Korea, but Bruce Spitzer gives him a stunning new mission in ExtraInnings. The novel and the author deserve a special salute for highlighting the leadership of the real man for a new generation, and brilliantly imagining his return to contribute once more to the proud tradition of the UnitedStates Marine Corps. Semper Fidelis, ‘Caveman.’ ”
Col. Andrew J. Ley USMCR(ret.), F-4 and A-4 driver, and former CO of VMA 322

Six Fenway Park Books Worth Reading: Extra Innings: “Sheer ballsiness”
Matthew Reed Baker, Boston Magazine

“Spitzer seamlessly mixes fact with fiction.”
Publishers Weekly

“In bookstores, readers get a glimpse of a world in which another icon, Ted Williams, lives again. Bruce E. Spitzer's Extra Innings imagines the Kid revived, in 2092, using cryonics. So, what's Williams up to? Batting against “Botwinder” robots and piloting jets in a war.”
Sports Illustrated Magazine
