Jeff Stanger

Jeff Stanger writes funny novels that usually have the game of baseball as a backdrop. You don’t have to be a student of the game or even a fan to enjoy them, however. There is enough mystery, danger, and even romance to keep you on the edge of your seat. His current work includes the Quick Baseball Mystery Series which follows the exploits of a rare baseball memorabilia dealer who always seems to land himself in the middle of a criminal case to be solved. The first installment, The Fungo Society, finds Quick at Spring Training trying to find a rare game used jersey. Along the way, he meets a group of old ballplayers named the Fungo Society. Think Bull Durham meets Grumpy Old Men meets Oceans 11!
In addition, Stanger has written Trolley Dodgers which follows the Midwest college town of Bloomington, IN as they try to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also wrote Kansaska, a funny look back at the semi-pro minor leagues of the 1940’s.
Stanger lives and writes in Indianapolis, Indiana. Along with writing, he is a member of the faculty at The Fund Raising School at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University and a nonprofit consultant.

Stickers, Lingerie, Chinese Food & Donuts

Our youngest son came to me with a business idea this past weekend. He wants to sell stickers on eBay. Intrigued by his entrepreneurial spirit, I began asking questions.  He seemed to have a business plan. Buy in bulk. Sell at a significant markup. And he had...

When This is Over…

I've been thinking a lot lately about what I'm going to do when this is over. And by this, I mean the Great Plague of 2020—caused by Mandalorian Death Cooties (I think COVID-19 is too blah for something that has shut down the entire world).  Everyone keeps asking...
