John Schulian

by Michael O. Allen on February 1, 2008

“Lord, how they hated to see Moe Hill come to Waterloo. When he had a bat in his hands and a Wisconsin Rapids
uniform on his back, a sense of dread rose from those

Iowa townies like summer heat off two-lane blacktop.”

Twilight of the Long-ball Gods by John Schulian

I was a teenage immigrant to this country when I first read Schulian in the pages of the Chicago Sun-Times. He wrote with such empathy and wisdom then that I missed his absence from the national landscape now. Where have you gone, John Schulian?

Anyone who loves baseball will love Schulian’s book. Anyone who loves and misses great baseball writing will love it even more.
