About the Book

The author has played recreational baseball of one kind or another for almost sixty years. He has worn the uniforms of more than a dozen teams over that period—sometimes noticeably, sometimes competently, and a scant few times almost disgracefully. Included in this narrative is a history of his almost thirty years of playing for one of the founding teams of the National Capital Baseball League—one of the largest, if not the largest, recreational baseball league in the country. Innings is an account of the author’s participation in a game that for him, regardless of his skill in playing it, has almost been a vocation.

About the Author

Mike Robertson, resigned now for years of the routine of retirement, continues to pursue the notion that he may have a literary aptitude, a belief that has sustained his endeavours for over a decade, and the publication of various projects. His most recent effort, a history entitled Innings, is his eleventh book, joining three collections of short stories, Casting Shadows, Parts of a Past, and These Memories Clear, three volumes of literary entertainments entitled The Smart Aleck Chronicles and four novels, Picture Windows, The Hidden History of Jack Quinn, The First Communion Murders, and Gone and Back. Mike Robertson continues to live in profound anonymity in Ottawa, Canada.
