Humor Science Fiction Romance baseball

Baseball is a game of unlikely stories, of fortunes turned on a wild pitch or a bad hop or a miracle play. A lot has changed in the game from the early 1900s, but in 2051, its nature is still the same. As said in the movie, Bull Durham: "This is a very simple game. You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains."

Science Fiction education fraud guide animals miniature horses visually impaired persons near-future

I started writing this near-future SF story about the privilege of wealth and education fraud sometime before 2002, and it was first published in 2015 in a charity anthology to benefit an animal shelter. When I wrote it, I wanted to give it a more human -- and animal -- touch, so it also features a miniature guide horse named Molly. Which really is a thing.
