Gideon Clarke is a man on a quest. He is out to prove to the world, as his father tried before him, that the world-champion Chicago Cubs traveled to Onamata, Iowa, in the summer of 1908 for an exhibition game against all-stars from the Iowa Baseball Confederacy, an amateur league. The game, which was to be short, pleasant, and, the Cubs thought, one-sided, turned into a titanic battle of over two thousand innings, played mostly in the pouring rain. This game is not on the record books. No one remembers it or the Confederacy. But Gideon Clarke knows it happened, and he is determined to set the record straight.

    " I read this book during a marvelous college class about baseball, literature, art, statistics and how to effectively heckle a Yankees fan. I love this book and though I agree with others that the last 3rd of the book gets a little wordy and may be in need of some editing, the magic of the book carries it through. "

    " About a baseball game only two men remember anything about (including the stats, scores and players), but which was never recorded in written history... Great story. "

    " Simply put, the best baseball fiction there is. "
