Just got my first real copies of the new edition of Zachary's Ball, due out on February 14, 2012. Zachary's Ball was my senior thesis at Bates College back in 1997, and was my very first real book when it came out in hardcover in 2000.
It's only been available in paperback for the past few years, so it's really exciting to see it back in hardcover. It has a newly designed cover, a new author's note about Fenway Park (which will turn 100 years old in 2012), and an awesome quote on the back from Peter Gammons.
The new edition will be available in hardcover and paperback, and both versions will hit bookstores on February 14, the same day that There Goes Ted Williams comes out.
Here are a couple pictures of my first copies:
