About The Book

Painting the Corners Again is Bob Weintraub’s second marvelous collection of baseball stories. It goes directly to the core of what America’s pastime does for us when we watch it being played on the field. Weintraub shows us that baseball has its heroes and its villains, and that they can reach into a person’s life and remain a part of us for the rest of our days.
Told from varying perspectives, Painting the Corners Again offers the personal experiences of the baseball player, manager, general manager, coach, scout, owner, writer, broadcaster, and fan. Each story strives for its own sense of authenticity and is full of characters that we recognize and want to spend time with.
In this collection, the author digs beyond the statistics and numbers that sometimes dominate our view of a sport and gets to the true humanity of baseball.

Raves and Reviews

“Great storytelling for fans and nonfans alike. Bob Weintraub has big-league talent.” —Dan Shaughnessy, author of The Curse of the Bambino and columnist for the Boston Globe

“Like lots of good stories set in baseball, the entries in Painting the Corners Again are less about baseball than they are about people and the curveballs they throw each other. Of at least one of the stories, O. Henry would have been proud.” —Bill Littlefield, host of NPR and WBUR’s Only a Game

“Imaginative baseball stories for long rain delays and hot stove league nights.” —Darryl Brock, author of If I Never Get Back and Two in the Field

“Unique and wonderfully twisted.” —Ed Asner, actor

“Great storytelling for fans and nonfans alike. Bob Weintraub has big-league talent.” —Dan Shaughnessy, author of The Curse of the Bambino and columnist for the Boston Globe
