Description 1 online resource
Summary When author Ethan D. Bryan sent an email to W.P. Kinsella (author of Shoeless Joe and the basis for the film Field of Dreams) describing the scope and vision of his latest project, Kinsella replied in short time and form: "I'm very distrustful of anyone who claims to hear voices. It is the fiction writer's job to create weird characters, but I wouldn't want to know any of them in real life." Journey with Ethan D. Bryan, a self-proclaimed real-life "weird character," in his quest to attend the Kansas City Royals' Fantasy Camp in Surprise, Arizona, and the unforeseen twists in the journey that led Ethan to take up a new cause: to raise money and awareness for high school baseball coach Howard Bell, a Springfield, Missouri legend recently diagnosed with A.L.S. (Lou Gehrig's disease).A portion of all proceeds will be donated to "Help Coach Bell Strike Out A.L.S." Charity
