Troubles begin for sports reporter A. B. Berkowitz when she is assigned to cover the Washington Senators, who are having a lousy season. When A.

Into this mix come the team’s televangelist owner, her hardcore editor, a two-timing boyfriend, and an aging All-Star catcher who is becoming romantic.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jane Leavy’s terrific Squeeze Play will have you reeling with laughter.” Larry King
“Does baseball mythology proud…The overall effect is that of a surreal parody, with a baseball team and newsroom that Mel Brooks might have assembled, where nobody and no activity is life-size, and where sex is a metaphor for baseball: You gotta play hurt.” New York Times Book Review
“Squeeze Play does for baseball what Semi-Tough did for football.” Washington Post Book World
“Squeeze Play will have you singing a rousing chorus of ‘Take Me Out to the Locker Room.’” People
“Jane Leavy’s Squeeze Play is the best baseball novel ever written…the funniest, raunchiest, and most compassionate baseball novel I’ve ever read.” Entertainment Weekly
“Raunchy…authentic…this tale by a former sportswriter for the Washington Post will delight readers willing to accept a healthy dose of vulgarity with their humor, especially those who know and love the rhythms and complexities of the national pastime.”  Publishers Weekly
“Uproarious and surprisingly touching.” AudioFile
“A funny, tender, true-to-life story of baseball, journalism, and war between the sexes.”  Library Journal
