Local author Anne Fredrickson has published her first book The Baseball Brothers. The book is illustrated by St. Olaf graduate Kathryn Weaver. The Baseball Brothers is available at Monkey See, Monkey Read for $12.95.
The Baseball Brothers is a children’s book that tells the true story of twelve brothers who played baseball together in the 1920s. Through working together on the farm and playing together as a team, the brothers developed lifelong friendships. The book is a tribute to baseball and a celebration of family.
In the book, a child tells of her grandfather and his days on the baseball team. She tells of how the novelty drew fans from miles around on horseback and in old Model-Ts. The story recounts the brothers’ most famous feats, including a game-saving tackle at home plate and an unlikely victory over a tough opponent. But the most important part of the tale is the enduring friendship and familial bond that the brothers shared.
