Major League Bride
An Inside Look at Life Outside the Ballpark
Kathleen Lockwood

Experience life outside of the ballpark with a Major League Bride
Major League Bride: An Inside Look at Life Outside the Ballpark details the triumphs and tribulations of family life within Major League Baseball.  It exposes the all pervasive pressure that accompanies the privilege of competing in America's National Pastime and spotlights the inner strength of the major league wives who support each other over the long "home alone" season. 
Major League Bride is a diary of growth, a journal of struggle, an account of bizarrely truthful stranger-than-fiction events involving eccentric teammates, a manual of survival but most of all a story of love
