Arnold resident Patrick Carney has published an e-book on Amazon about the role baseball played in the nation's healing process after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
"Baseball after 9/11: Six Nights That Helped Heal America" chronicles the power of six nights at the ballpark in a post-September 11 world. The story takes readers from the debate over whether to resume playing games again and Mike Piazza's memorable game-winning home run 10 days after September 11 to President George W. Bush's famous first pitch before game three of the 2001 World Series and the chants of U-S-A in Philadelphia on the night Osama bin Laden was killed nearly 10 years later.
The e-book is long-form journalism length, and is available for purchase on Amazon.com for $2.99. Readers can read the e-book on any Kindle or Kindle App on their computers.
A portion of book’s proceeds will be donated to Tuesday’s Children, a New York-based charity that supports the children and families of people lost on September 11 by providing counseling, mentoring, and college and career guidance on a needs-based basis.
