Baseball Story

bobbydodds

I read a story a couple years ago that I really liked, but can't remember what it was. Follows a guy playing baseball for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays from the minor leagues up through the majors, and I think they even go to the World Series. Follows him and his girlfriend and their life. Any help would be great, thanks.

Oh Boy by Dual Writer?

No. Stories in that series center on Baltimore, not Tampa.

If not Oh Boy then maybe something by Tony Stevens? NOTE: I have not read any of his work, I don't know if the details match,

That take-me-out-to-the ballgame link *is* Tony Stevens and if he writes about any team other than Baltimore, it is to say where a Baltimore player was playing before he was signed for the O's. I suppose he also writes about the O's opposition but the original question included a World Series and the chances of a WS being between Baltimore and Tampa are currently zero.

Ah, Sorry. I was going by search terms. He had several with "Tampa" "Devil" and "Baseball" and I didn't want to read all of them to narrow it down. So I posted the author. They must have played the Devil Rays. Sobeit

I think you're looking for play ball by Ernest Bywater.
