Pitching In The Promised Land by Aaron Pribble I was today notified by the University of Nebraska Press that my request for a review copy of Pitching in the Promised Land: A Story of the First and Only Season in the Israel Baseball League by former IBL pitcher Aaron Pribble was approved.

I hope to receive the book in the coming week or so, and to post my review to JewishSportsCollectibles soon after.

According to Amazon.com, the book — which is garnering terrific reviews – "is a story of coming of age spiritually and athletically in one short season in the throes of romance, Middle Eastern politics, and the dreams of America‚Äôs pastime far, far afield from home."

In the meantime, you can follow Aaron on Facebook, where you can also get news about the book.
