Today we discussed the motif of baseball and the players in the book. We talked about why we think W.P. Kinsella put Joe Jackson in the book instead of another more famous player. We decided that Kinsella used to watch Joe Jackson play baseball in Minor leagues. After researching both Shoe less Joe Jackson and W.P. Kinsella we found out that W.P. Kinsella watched him when he was younger.
