YUCAIPA, Calif. – The North American Fastpitch Association celebrated its 22nd year hosting men’s and young men’s (age 23-Under) championship tournaments in the Quad Cities of Iowa and Illinois in 2014.

After covering and photographing the World Series, I wrote a book about it entitled, “2014 NAFA Men’s Fastpitch World Series”.

    Putting a period on 2014 NAFA World Series book

    Thursday, June 4th, 2015


    YUCAIPA, Calif. – After four months, three edits, and changes, changes and more changes…the 2014 NAFA World Series book is just about finished.

    I’m working on the photo gallery section and experimenting with some photo collages such as this one of Cleon’s first baseman Scott Andersen, who had a good World Series.

    As one of my editors would tell me whenever I spent way to long on a story and he wanted me to wrap it up, “Otto put a period on it!”

    And so next week the period shall fall mightily and the manuscript will be sent to the publisher for printing.

    For those interested, I’ll have ordering information once it’s available.
