Forty years ago, Roberto Clemente slashed a double into left-center field, recording his 3000th regular season career hit. Three months later he would be dead. Clemente’s at-bat is the central incident in Kevin Guilfoile’s book, A Drive into the Gap, the first title from the publishing imprint of our Field Notes Brand. The book has garnered great reviews and is a story about baseball and memory, and fathers and sons. See a film and read an excerpt from A Drive into the Gap here. News: ESPN: The Magazine has just published long excerpt of the book, plus video features, in this month’s Hall of Fame issue.
