Happy opening day! We’ve got good news for all you baseball fans: we’re giving away TWO copies of Chasing Moonlight: The True Story of Field of Dreams’ Doc Graham, a biography of Moonlight Graham by Brett Friedlander and Robert Reising.
Just released in paperback, Chasing Moonlight proves that truth is more interesting than fiction. The real-life Moonlight Graham didn’t play just a half-inning for John McGraw’s New York Giants, as depicted in Field of Dreams. Neither did he retire from baseball after his lone major league appearance. Rather, he became a fan favorite during a noteworthy professional career, all the while juggling baseball with medical residencies.
Graham’s life apart from baseball was just as eventful. He was a physician who sat with patients through epidemics and wrote a blood pressure study that was required reading at medical schools worldwide. But he was also a failed inventor and small-town character who built perpetual-motion machines and filled his home with tennis balls and empty oatmeal boxes.
