 What they are saying about Wild Cards:

 

"Author Ken Berris is now the grand impresario of sports fantasy with his amazing story of a game between baseball’s greatest heroes of yore and those of today. As he brings from death to life famous ball players, Berris searches for a new formula to answer the question of whether we pass from this life to something new. He picks from science, philosophy and from a host of religious traditions for its constituent elements."

 "A home run with any audience. It brought back so many memories of the impact that baseball has had on my family over the generations. Wild Cards will entertain and inform everyone."

 JOHN CLEMENS

USA RADIO NETWORK 

 

 

"WILD CARDS is a thoroughly enjoyable story about loyalty, virtuosity, faith and baseball that offers readers a great climax which pits the stars of today—Miguel Cabrera, Clayton Kershaw, Mike Trout, Madison Bumgarner et al.—against a teams of legends—Babe Ruth, Satchel Paige, Roberto Clemente, Jackie Robinson et al.—in a game for the ages at Yankee Stadium. The legends have somehow come back to life, and the story appeals to all of us who would love to see Ty Cobb and Josh Gibson take on Madison Baumgarner and David Price."   

WARREN LAWRENCE

"Legends come to life in this baseball fantasy tale. A new, imaginative take on how fans connect with their baseball heroes, bringing to life why people love and collect their legendary stories."

JOHNNY BENCH

HALL OF FAME CATCHER 

 

 

"Wild Cards is Harry Potter meets Field of Dreams. It's the essence of Norman Rockwell in today's American polyglot world. It's the sweetness of youth and imagination inspired by our ageless inherent love affair with our National Pastime. Wild Cards is an emotional home run with the bases loaded." 

CYRUS YAVNEH

PRODUCER, THE HIT TV SHOW 24

DAVID MEGGYESY

AUTHOR, OUT OF THEIR LEAGUE

 

 

"Faith and baseball? I was expecting a book about the Chicago Cubs. Instead, Ken Berris has given us a story more akin to Field of Dreams. Good. Wholly unexpected."

 "For all of those sports fans who argue about who throughout history was better than whom, here is Ken Berris’ wonderfully imaginative way of asking the question. Wild Cards is a terrific romp through baseball fields and history, igniting readers' memories as visceral as the smell of mown infield grass and the sound of a game on a neighbor's radio. Readers from ages nine to ninety-nine will have a blast."
