Author David Belisleabout this book: For those who have whiled away a minute or two or three wondering what the afterlife holds for us, "Forever We Play" ventures down the grand old game's base paths. I harken to my first visit of the Arizona D'backs spring training ballpark in Scottsdale, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. Stepping out from the concourse, absorbing the panoramic view of green grass, blue sky, busy scoreboard, fans relaxing on blankets, the buzz in the air, a beer in hand, etc., it all smacked me as heaven on earth. I took up the task of telling a tale incorporating that aura as religion. Fielding Schmelling became my humble, Woody Allen-inspired character to lead the way as soul-taker for the Houston Astros. He falls for a lovely real estate gal who, er ... falls out of the stands. Her soul lands in his lap and their quest for heaven begins. It's a feel-good read for baseball fans whose hearts fly deep with the home run ball.

Where'd I get the title from? I had "Soul Takers" as the screenplay title. It struck me however as perhaps too horror story-like. While adapting the story to book format, I bumped into a teenager wearing a t-shirt with the phrase "Forever We Play." Perfect. Thanks, Lord.
