A Memoir of Family, Food, and BaseballBook - 2006
Molly O'Neill's father believed that baseball was his family's destiny. He wanted enough sons for an infield, so he married the tallest woman in Columbus, Ohio. Molly came along first, but eventually her father's plan prevailed: five boys followed in rapid succession and the youngest, Paul O'Neill, did, in fact, grow up to be the star right fielder for the New York Yankees. Here, celebrated food critic and writer O'Neill tells the story of her quintessentially American family and the places where they come together--around the table and on the ball field. This is the chronicle of a regular family pursuing the American dream and of one girl's quest to find her place in a world built for boys.--From publisher description.
