    Christopher Renino’s The Way Home is Longer is a novelized account of Jackie Robinson’s first year in the major leagues as seen through the eyes Vincent Stigiano, a batboy with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Blending historically accurate events throughout a fictional coming-of-age story, the narrative arc reveals the tumult that was the Dodgers’ clubhouse in 1947. St. Martin’s first published Mr. Renino’s book in 1997. BaseballLibrary.com is proud to announce it will be presenting select portions of the novel to coincide with the 60th anniversary of each day referenced within its pages. We are also publishing a new edition of the work, which has been out of print for several years. You may purchase it in either paperback ($14.95) or eBook format ($12.95).
