Westlake; The Further Adventures of Slugger McBatt: Baseball Stories () by W. P. Kinsella.Story collections focusing on baseball include Shoeless Joe Jackson Comes to Iowa (), the title story that formed the basis of the novel Shoeless Joe, and The Further Adventures of Slugger McBatt (), which was reissued as Go the Distance ().

SLUGGER is an uplifting tale of an underdog who makes good. The outcome is a bit predictable, and the story has some holes. (Why does Ollie only have to bat and not field?)
