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.

Good Luck & Mangos

I was on the road again last week. This was the last trip for a while and it was for pleasure, not work. This time we visited our youngest son in Hawaii. Sounds rough, I know. But somebody has to have a kid in Hawaii and we thought, “why not us?” Actually, that one...

The Butt Cheek / Hookery Part of Town

My wife and I took a road trip to Columbus Ohio to see the band Toto this weekend. Columbus is the home to Ohio State University and White Castle. There are probably some famous people from there, but I was too lazy to look them up. I do know (now) that it is the...
