It’s a Baseball Mystery!

By Alafair Burke


I know you love mysteries. Here’s the set-up. I had the honor of kicking off the Memorial Day Weekend by throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the New York Yankees’ game against the Texas Rangers with Mary Higgins Clark, my extraordinary co-author of THE CINDERELLA MURDER and the upcoming ALL DRESSED IN WHITE. Mary could have launched a fastball from the mound, but I asked to be a little closer to home plate. Video of our epic pitches to come, but you can see from these photos that we had a grand time.

Were my shoes the first hot pink sneakers to touch MLB grass? I wonder, but, no, that’s not much of a mystery.

So where’s the mystery? Mary and I were each permitted to choose our jersey numbers. Mary’s “40” celebrates her 40th year in publishing. But what’s up with my “58”? Enter your best guess here by June 12 for a chance to win signed copies of ALL FIVE BOOKS in the Ellie Hatcher series. DO NOT enter your guesses in the comments below the blog.
