Item description for The Legendary Barons by John P. Rutledge Michael J. Vaughn...

Tommy Folgett's life is littered with disappointments: a broken marriage, alcoholism, and squandered artistic talent. But he did create one hell of a softball team. Under Tommy's tutelage, this hodge-podge of characters has lived out ten years of victories and defeats, joys and squabbles, on Friday nights at the Double River softball complex. They have, in fact, become a family.

When a broken relationship sends Tommy back to the bottle, the self-abuse spills over to his housemate and shortstop, Honus. Tommy's envy of Honus's writing career, and the campaign of subtle sabotage that follows, threatens to destroy his one great achievement: the legendary Barons.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Legendary Barons?

Non-Softball Fans, too!  Jun 11, 2003
I'm really not a sports fan at all, but I found Vaughn's book entertaining for the struggles of its characters. Tommy Folgett, the manager, is just a terribly sad figure, who doesn't know what to do to fend off his alcoholism and the fallout of his divorce. It was very touching - I've been affected by a number of alcholics in my own life (even though I don't even go to bars much), and I can see a lot of the same characteristics here that I've dealt with myself. A very touching book.
Much more than the game  May 2, 2003
Like any good sports novel, "Barons" is about much more than the game. The team has a cast of eccentric and likeable characters, and the manager, Tommy Folgett, brings a particularly touching and frustrating pathos to his descent into alcoholism.
