Stealing Home: Rookie Season



Stealing Home: Rookie Season collects the first year of Paddy Johnston’s heartfelt and deeply personal essays about baseball, fan stories, and why we find meaning in sports.

Johnston was inspired to start his Stealing Home email newsletter to tell his story. The story of going from a total sports hater to a passionate baseball fan. How this journey transformed him as a person, for the better.

Stealing Home deals with childhood trauma, confidence, mental health, and the meaning that sports give to our lives.

Collecting all of 2019’s Stealing Home email essays, this book has an additional number of exclusive essays and comics, plus illustrations by Sam Williams and Rozi Hathaway.
