    1. This book is about a washed up old Minor League Pitcher, Sam Ward, who has finally been called upon to pitch the final game of the season for the Cubs against the Phillies, but this game will also decide who wins the pennant. Standing in his way is veteran umpire, Ernie Kolacka, who is calling his last game of his career is being paid by a friend who he owes a debt to call the games in the Phillies favor so they can win the game and he can make money off the win. It is hard to fit this book into [...]

    2. This book starts slow, but that is necessary in order to set the significant context for what is the last game of the season in the National League. The game is between the Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies and the winner of the game will win the division. There are two main characters, the umpire behind the plate and the man pitching for the Cubs.Sam Ward is a journeyman pitcher, a thirty-two-year-old rookie that has had six brief appearances in the majors, with the rest of his action in t [...]

    3. Mildly entertaining book about an aging umpire calling his last game, and the last chance for an over the hill minor league pitcher. If you enjoy baseball than it's worth the time and effort to read this book.

    4. This book is a fictional story about an aging pitcher who has finally made it to pitch for the Cubs and an umpire who has been approached to throw the big game to the Phillies [which is the very last one before his retirement:]. It takes place in a 24 hr. period, but their memories give us lots of insight as to both characters.

    5. Read this while vacationing in Oregon during the end of baseball season. Novel told from the dual perspectives of the pitcher for the Cubs and an about about to retire umpire who has reason to fix the game in favor of Philadelphia.

    6. Lots of tension and drama and baseball. However, Strike Zone features some of the worst writing ever. Despite the garbage prose, I finished this quickly and enjoyed it. Skipped some of the forced backstory and tensed up during the more taut moments.

    7. It's about a pitcher and the umpire who has planned to throw the game.I can't remember when I read it but there are more than a few sentences, idioms and situations that I remember despite not retaining anything else in this book

    8. I didn't think it was a great book. It was sweet and funny in places, but I kept reading because I had to know how that game ended.

    9. Real good.Every inning of a ball game, alternating pitcher and umpire.Includes flashbacks to their lives, not boring.Funny and enjoyable.

    10. One of my favorite authors - love the real-life baseball stories. BALL FOUR is a classic and must read for any baseball fan/player.
