Zach Porter was living the dream, pitching for the major leagues with the New England Mavericks, being courted by the press and Hollywood starlets, tables at the best restaurants, endorsement deals, everything he wanted from his career. Until he injured his shoulder. Now, as he comes back from surgery and works his way back to the pitcher's mound, he has his sights set on something else-Piper Lewis, a beautiful, deaf artist he met while visiting his siblings in Grayson Falls, New Hampshire. Zach knows the best years of his career are behind him, but he's got one more goal in mind before he can leave the game on his own terms. Piper Lewis wasn't born deaf. She lost her hearing as a young adult after a serious illness. She had to relearn how to approach the world around her, fight to establish her independence, and her place in the art world. Painting is more than just a passion for Piper. It's her therapy. Her way to make sense of a world that keeps putting obstacles in her way. Just when she was starting to think about joining her parents in Florida, Zach Porter blew into Grayson Falls. Her favorite baseball player in the flesh, and he set his sights on her. Zach and Piper are from two very different worlds. His is loud, crowded, and exciting. Hers is quiet, peaceful, and private. To make a life together, they'll need to learn to adapt and survive in each other's world, learn to live outside of their comfort zones, and learn to play The Perfect Game.

Genre: Sports & Recreation

The first in-depth look at baseball's nirvana -- a lyrical history of pitching perfection. There have been only fourteen perfect games pitched in the modern era of baseball; the great Cy Young fittingly hurled the first, in 1904, and David Cone pitched the most recent, in 1999. In between, some great pitchers -- Sandy Koufax, Catfish Hunter, Jim Bunning, and Don Larsen in the World Series -- performed the feat, as did some mediocre ones, like Len Barker and the little-known Charlie Robertson. Fourteen in 150,000 games: The odds are staggering. When it does happen, however, the whole baseball world marvels at the combination of luck and skill, and the pitcher himself gains a kind of baseball immortality. Five years ago, Michael Coffey witnessed such an event at Yankee Stadium, and the experience prompted this expansive look at the history of these unsurpassable pitching performances. He brings his skills as a popular historian and poet to an appraisal of both the games themselves and of the wider sport of baseball and the lives of the players in it. The careers of each of the fourteen perfect-game pitchers are assessed, not only as to their on-the-field performances but with a regard for their struggles to persevere in an extremely competitive sport in which, more often than not, the men and women who run the game from the owners' boxes are their most formidable adversaries. Along the way, Michael Coffey brings us right into the ballparks with a play-by-play account of how these games unfolded, and relates a host of fascinating stories, such as Sandy Koufax's controversial holdout with Don Drysdale and its chilling effect on baseball's owners, Mike Witt's victimization by the baseball commissioner, and Dennis Martinez's long struggle up from an impoverished Nicaraguan childhood. Combining history, baseball, and a sweeping look at the changing face of labor relations, 27 Men Out is a new benchmark in sports history.
