About the book:
Similar to how H.G. Bissinger’s Friday Night Lights uses high school football in Texas as a lens to look at society, Brian Carriveau’s It’s Just a Game observes adult amateur baseball in Wisconsin as a means to examine small-town America.
The non-fiction book, published by Winners Success Network, chronicles a season in southern Wisconsin’s Home Talent League as its stakeholders make their way through life while at the same time trying to win a championship.
From blue collar to white collar, the players, coaches, and umpires are police officers, teachers, delivery drivers, insurance salesmen, and people you meet on the street every day. On their evenings and weekends, they dedicate an inordinate amount of time to a brand of sport that saw its heyday peak between the two world wars.
Trying to execute the perfect sacrifice bunt is only part of their worries. Life doesn’t stop for baseball. Along the way, they deal with everything from small-town politics to the death of a loved one. But the one thing they all have in common is the love of the game.
