Welcome to the Continental Baseball League! This fictional league operates in competition with the established American and National leagues. The players may be fictional, but they face very real career obstacles. In "Payback" lefty Alan Coltard is looking for validation for his efforts. To do that he must "get even" with one man who he thinks held him back. Slugging outfielder J.C. Taylor confronts a different set of obstacles. First he must reconcile his new situation when he is traded from the contending Washington Federals to the lowly Columbus Buckeyes. On top of that he must somehow deal with the reappearance of an old flame that could threaten everything else that he holds dear.
About the Author
Mike McSorley has enjoyed a career in both broadcasting and newspapers. He has been a successful radio programmer at stations throughout the Midwest, South, and Northeast.
He switched over to newspapers serving as sports reporter, copy editor, and city editor in New England.
Baseball has always been his first love, a lifelong fan of the Cincinnati Reds. This love for the game gave rise to the idea of creating his own league, stocked with fictional players who took on a life of their own.
Recording their triumphs and failures has filled many a long hour when there was no major league baseball. It was a way to get through the interminable winters between seasons. It also served as an escape when his favorite team was falling fast in the standings.
This book is just the starting point on a journey through the make-believe world of big-league baseball where every hitter might hit .300 and every pitcher could win 20 games.
He lives with his wife in Down East Maine.
