I've read a few of your books over the years, starting off with the book you gave me when I was a kid, it was a pitching instruction book! "A False Spring" was a good read and I'm looking forward to reading " The Devil in Eric Show". I'm keeping an eye out for your article in Best Life magazine featuring my Dad, Mitch Lutzke about his work at Portland PD 991 operations.

Hi Pat --
I've read "A False Spring" more than once. As an ex minor-leaguer from the early 50s, I really enjoyed your memoir. I started in Class D, too, and felt I was reading my own memoir.
All of us members of that "Fraternity of Anonymous Minor-Leaguers" would feel the same way. I can see why the book is considered a baseball classic now. Most of us were callow 18 year old kids playing far from home on all those Class D leagues and had to grow up in a hurry. One of the truest parts of the book related to you and the girl. I think all of us would remember how important it was to have a girl as we tried to cope with learning how to play as a professional in strange new places, going through our adolescent ritesof-passage, and putting up with a lot of stress and rough horseplay (in addition to the never-forgotten cameraderie) both in the clubhouse and on the field. (Let's not forget those gruelling bus-trips and tiny "meal-money" allowances on road trips, either !)
Good job !

My son picked up a copy of A False Spring at a book sale because he knew I am still a big Milwaukee Braves fan. This book was much more than I expected. I will now start reading more of your works hoping for more gems. Thank you.

My youngest son bought A Nice Tuesday for my 50th birthday and I was nearly as impressed as when I read a False Spring 30+ years ago. I too left baseball for a number of years and returned to pitch at the spritely age of 45 because I couldn't resist the power and control on the hill. I happened to compete against Dave Fleming after his stint with the Waterbury Spirit and immensely enjoyed pitching and hitting against an accomplished major leaguer, although he was somewhat limited by shoulder injuries.
I think you might enjoy writing an article about the Father/Son baseball tournaments currently sponsored by the Roy Hobbs and MSBL leagues annually. I've enjoyed playing with a group of New Englanders and ex-Red Sox players in these tournaments and the camraderie can't be matched .

I went to high school with Pat. He had a great fastball and a wicked jump shot. Have followed him since he left baseball as a player and have enjoyed his work since then. Recently I was reading one of my weekly magazines and there was an article by Pat Had to tell my wife all the old sports stories for the next hour. Keep up the great work, Jack

You are a terrific writer. I just finished reading "Dad's Last Visit" in the November/December issue of the AARP Magazine. It was a very touching short story, and I hope to read more of your work.
Please finish the book about your father. I can't wait to read more about this fascinating man!

Hey there Pat,
I was just telling my mom about you. She lives in Florida, too. I decided to google you so I could send her some info on you. Nice website, will send to my brother, too, who is a huge sports fan and used to write for a local paper in South Florida. You need to add a link back to your homepage. Saw Jackie after she came back from her visit. She was thrilled with the scissors. Thanks for making her visit so memorable. Next time, you need to come to Virginia. Would love to see you and Susan again. Lisa

Just finished reading A Nice Tuesday. Only recently became aware of its existance via this site. I enjoyed it.. Read A False Spring way back when, and have re-read it many times. Like others, I tried to push it on my ex-wife and her "I'm a super jock" 13 year old to no avail.
I also have dogs, 2 labs looking for the 3rd, so i can identify with the pain you went through with Bubba. I lost a previous dog who got out of the yard, to a car and the bastard didn't even stop but left him lying on the road. Bubba was a decison you had to make, and that was so much tougher.
My only other comment is what can I do to get my wife as "friendly" as Susan? You and I are about the same age, maybe a year or two on your side, and although only married 5 years, it's a good relationship. She just will not get kinky.
Again, like your books...good luck with your puppies.

Read about you in a recent issue of the Sports Collector Digest and was anxious to go to your website. I'm interested in reading about Eric Show. I think I'll start with that one.

Pat, I just read about you in the Sports Collectors Digest. What I was wonder do you have any more of the hardcover of A False Spring or A Nice Tuesday signed? I'm into hardcover signed book only. Thank you, Burke Adams. PS---did you happen to see the story about my disabled flag football on ESPN last Superbowl? I started up the first disabled flag football that is involved with a Pop Warner program.

Is this the Pat Jordan from Florida. You did an article on me and my armwrestling back in 87'. I introduced you to the Gracies and Francis Seguira. If this is you, email me and I will call you. How are you?

I recently discovered your writing, first through the NY Times Mag piece; that's when I realized your mother was my regular babysitter when I was young back in Fairfield, probably during the years you were a ball player, and your dad often accompanied her. Looking forward to reading more of your work.

Just read "To Hills and Back" and boy, can I ever relate! Just moved 6 months ago to N. Idaho from Las Vegas...still not over the culture shock. Almost everything Pat experienced in NC is something I've seen in Idaho. Wal-Mart, pick up trucks, huntin', fishin', roarin' drunk thru the woods on an ATV are the order of the day...not to mention "Yard Art"..rusted disabled cars that just sit in the yard where they died! I think I'm ready to move on!

what Italtan-ghetto in bpt. are you claiming in 1941--that is an outright LIE --homes in Bpt.@ 1941 and beyond were quite stylish -your move to FFld. perhaps distoted your view--you really should retract. I will persue. Ray

Read your story about leaving Ft. Lauderdale for W.Virg.Mts.
Had been anticipating making the same type of move from a tourist location outside of Charlotte, NC to our Mt. home, but reading your experience and eventual conclusion has convinced me that I would last about as long as you did (six months and out).

You got me smoking cigars back in the early 90s. What are you smoking now? Good to find you again.
