A Nice Tuesday
A MemoireBook - 2016
The poignant and hilarious true story of a middle-aged pitcher's return to the mound a quarter-century after his big league dreams went up in smoke One of baseball's original "bonus babies," Pat Jordan signed with the Milwaukee Braves in 1959-and then proceeded to struggle mightily in the minor leagues over the next three years. Depressed and frustrated, he gave up on baseball and eventually discovered his true calling as one of American's greatest sportswriters. But the unfulfilled promise of his youth continued to haunt Jordan, until, at the ripe old age of fifty-six, he resolved to get back into shape and rediscover his fastball. Come hell or high water, he would pitch again, this time for the Waterbury (Connecticut) Saints, an independent minor league team made up of players half his age. Eloquent, honest, and delightfully bawdy, A Nice Tuesday is the sequel to Jordan's acclaimed memoir, A False Spring, and the unforgettable chronicle of a sports comeback unlike any other.
