"Kill the Ampaya demonstrates fine literary talent" according to Spitball magazine

In its review of Kill the Ampaya, Spitball, the Literary Baseball Magazine says: "Lovers of baseball short fiction looking for an infusion of fresh exciting material should get their hands on Kill The Ampaya! (Mandel Vilar Press) asap. Ranging from a faux-noir mystery with an O'Henry ending ("Winners and Losers" by Nan Chevalier) to a brilliantly worded and imagined memoir of a baseball broadcaster overlaid with political allusion ("The Real Thing" by Alexis Gomez Rosa), these 18 short stories from accomplished Latin American writers not only reflect a love of baseball equal to our own; they demonstrate fine literary talent previously inaccessible to us. Highly Recommended."
