Tim Green has recently released his new book Baseball Genius. The book, which was co-written with baseball legend, Derek Jeter, is sure to delight baseball fans both young and old. In order to promote the release, Tim will be signing copies of the book at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, IL. The signing will begin at 7pm on Thursday, March 9th. In order to secure your spot in line, make sure to purchase your copy of the book at Anderson’s.
The book, which released on March 7th, tells the incredible story of Jalen DeLuca, a boy who can guess the type of throw that a pitcher will cast. He uses this amazing ability to aid the at-risk career of New York Yankee, James Yager, after he is caught attempting to steal baseballs from Yager’s home. The book draws some inspiration from Jeter’s life, as the main character’s name is derived from Jeter’s real-life nephew. The book is the first entry in a planned trilogy of baseball themed books from the two authors.
Jeter, who has had one of the greatest professional careers of any baseball player in league history, has published multiple books through his publishing company, Jeter Publishing. To date, Jeter Publishing has published 7 books—6 non-fiction adult books and 1 children’s story—with another children’s book slated to release next month. And Green is no stranger to the world of young adult reading himself, having published almost 20 books for children, with another 16 books for adults. Together, the two combined their respective experience and knowledge of baseball with their real life experiences into what is sure to be a home run.
The co-authors even appeared together on CBS’ This Morning in order to discuss the novel and some of its background.
