Book 1: Confessions of a Beantown Sports Junkie
Keith takes a fun, light-hearted trip down memory lane and his experiences as a player, coach and avid fan of all Boston sports. After recovering from two rounds of life-threatening brain surgeries, he was able to play on three championship softball teams in two states. It is also a story of love and devotion between a son and his father.
“What a great piece of work! I felt that it gave me a grand tour of Boston sports!”
“I loved it because of the honest descriptions of the struggles of youth and the importance that support of family plays in a persons life.”
“A good read that paints a vivid picture of how a true sport fans love for his hometown sport teams is intertwined with the other aspects of his life from childhood through adolescence to becoming an adult.”
Book 2: Fathers and Sons ~ Sports and Life
A story of an uncommon love and devotion between fathers and sons. It is a story of my recovery from two rounds of life-threatening brain surgeries to play on three championship softball teams in two states. It includes a chapter on the most controversial sports topic of our time; Deflategate.
