Jim Collins, a native New Englander, played college baseball at Dartmouth and is a former editor of Yankee magazine. His work has twice been noted in the annual Best American Sportswriting anthology. He lives in Seattle, Washington, and Orange, New Hampshire.
"Jim Collins chronicled, with a careful eye and lyrical prose, the
2002 season of the Chatham A's...juxtaposing the joys of the game
with the heartbreak that accompanies a player when he finds out
that he is not good enough for the majors."
