Judges Victor LaValle and Emily Raboteau said this of this piece: “The story manages to be about something simple–two best friends who play on a girls’ softball team in New Jersey–while also exploring a much grander subject–how these two children cope with the loss of any worthwhile male role models in their lives. And, best of all, they discover that their friendship, spiky and raw, can be enough to keep them safe and sane and hopeful. This story is also funny as hell and driven by a first rate, charming narrative voice. It was also such a pleasure to read a story about girls playing baseball, that great American pastime, and treating them like serious athletes, right down to the mess pitchers and catchers talk as they warm up on the mound.”
