It's the summer of 1961, and all eyes in the sports world are riveted on New York's Yankee Stadium, where young outfielder Marvin Wallace is mounting an assault on Babe Ruth's record of 60 home runs in a season. As the upstart slugger closes in on the legendary Sultan of Swat, the pressure begins building off the field: Someone is making death threats, and it's up to ballplayer-turned-private eye Mark Renzler to figure out who. With a lineup of possible suspects that includes New Jersey gambling interests, fanatical Ruth fans and even Wallace's own teammates, Renzler faces a full count in late innings. If he doesn't come through in the clutch, it could be Marvelous Marvin's last time at bat. Praise for Paul Engleman, Mark Renzler, and Dead in Center Field: "Paul Engleman is a deft storyteller with a quirky touch. Mark Renzler is a sociable Sam Spade: great company for the reader." -- Studs Terkel "A grand slam!" -- Lin Brehmer, WXRT Chicago "The wisecracks are funny and the allusions clever. Engleman, like Chandler, doesn't take himself too seriously." -- Publishers Weekly "This one's right in the ballpark." -- Los Angeles Times "It's a delight!" -- Playboy "An excellent baseball mystery and a legendary private eye." -- Sacramento Bee "Breezy and irreverent, Engleman works in 60s touches without wallowing in nostalgia." -- Chicago Sun-Times

Mike has his junior year well under control. He's got a solid group of friends. He's dating Lori, one of the hottest girls in school. And Coach Cody has all but given him the starting spot as the Ridgedale Rangers' varsity center fielder. And then Oscar Ramirez shows up. Oscar is an amazing ballplayer, as talented at the plate as he is in center field, and it's not long before Mike loses control. He's on the bench, he's getting into fights, and he finds himself in weekend detention with Katherine Herold, the most mysterious, abrasive, alluring girl in school. Mike is lost, confused, and looking to Coach Cody to help him get back on track. But the coach has his own set of rules for Mike to play by, and the decisions Mike makes are going to impact more than just the starting lineup. Robert Lipsyte, one of the most celebrated writers in young adult literature, has crafted a subtly intense tale of adolescent struggle, a sports story about much more than sports—one that shows us how the moves one makes off the field matter even more than the moves one has on it.

Cynthia West says, "Poems form a path, with places to rest from the grief that rides the shoulders with the claws of a hawk. It takes strong legs to carry the sorrow of all who ask. It takes a clear mind to bear the voices. It takes the balance of a tightrope walker not to trip on the pain. The flowers, upholding petals and seeds, understand the burden a yoke can be. Sensing their transience, they announce, 'Poems build the road forward, providing hollows where gladness can grow.'" Known for her visionary paintings, Cynthia is also a poet, photographer, digital imager, potter and book artist. Her home with many gardens, where she has lived for forty years with her husband and family, is a healing center as well as her studio and gallery. Her works are collected worldwide. west is the author of four previous collections of poetry, "For Beauty Way," "1000 Stone Buddhas," "Rainbringer," and "The New Sun," the last two from Sunstone Press.
