Deadball Goes To College

Colbourn Hall, UCF Department of History

Last month my publisher received an email from the campus bookstore at the University of Central Florida inquiring about ordering copies of my book Deadball, A Metaphysical Baseball Novel. Long story short, turns out Deadball is one of eight required readings for┬áBaseball and American Culture (AMH3930h), an honors course being taught this semester at the University. The course explores: “The history of baseball and its interaction with a variety of areas of American culture from the 19th through the early 21st century.” The course is taught by Dr. Richard Crepeau, a distinguished Professor of History at UCF, Author, and Chair of the Department. An honor, indeed! I certainly hope the students enjoy the story of Byron Bennett.
