“Back when I coached, I accused sportswriters of being fiction writers. In this instance, it’s definitely true. Mike Baldwin, a sportswriter I’ve known for years, has written a classic whodunit that keeps you guessing until the surprising ending. You root for Veronica, the sexy sports agent, to solve the mystery.“

“With baseball being my first love, growing up in a small Kansas town, Smashed Tater had me hooked from the beginning. Mike Baldwin captures the dream of every young kid through John “Quake” Jensen. When his career ends much too early, Veronica, his sports agent, is motivated to discover the person responsible. A story full of twists and turns. I highly recommend Smashed Tater.”
