One fog-bound night in 1900, the citizens of Port Newton, California, fish a six-foot tall, half-drowned American Indian dressed in a tuxedo out of San Francisco Bay. He turns out to be washed-up, ex-Big League pitcher Chief Dobbs—a boorish but charismatic hustler. The Chief, as one would expect, begins to lead Port Newton’s ragtag town team to victory but only by employing the dirty ball tactics of McGraw, Jennings, and the Orioles of the 1890s.

The Fade-away is a comedic yet literary story about amateur baseball, love, greed, and America’s plunge into modernity.

The Fade-away is also available as an ebook on Amazon.com for the Kindle.

George Jansen is also the author of The Jesse James Scrapbook. His website is georgejansen.com.
