Publisher's Summary

A riveting inside account of the most unforgettable season in Los Angeles Dodgers history, from the COVID-delayed start through the incredible playoff run, by the broadcaster who saw it all.

Amid strict new rules and coronavirus outbreaks on other teams that wreaked havoc on the schedule, the Dodgers maintained a laser focus as a team and organization, and, ultimately, won the first bubbled playoffs in the history of Major League Baseball. 

In COVID Curveball, author and Dodgers’ broadcaster Tim Neverett takes us through this unprecedented season, offering exclusive access and firsthand edge-of-your-seat play-by-play coverage of the surreal days and weeks that led up to the dramatic championship climax. It’s a highly entertaining, often humorous, chronicle of the quirky nature of the season, the goings-on behind the scenes at the stadium and MLB at large, as well as the unique chemistry forged in the diverse and dynamic clubhouse.  

Along with insights into the potent lineup that produced jaw-dropping moments by Mookie Betts, Corey Seager, Justin Turner, Max Muncy, and Cody Bellinger, the book also celebrates the incredible achievements of Clayton Kershaw that cemented his Hall-of-Fame legacy, and the remarkable job done by Dave Roberts and the Dodgers’ executives and ownership. 

Highlighted by empty stands, remote broadcasts, and relentless testing, 2020 was perhaps the strangest baseball season ever...but it produced the most savored World Series celebration in the history of the game. 

Includes an in-depth foreword by Dodgers’ legend Orel Hershiser.

Terrific insider information on how MLB and the LA

COVID Curveball is a terrific insider information on how MLB and the LA Dodgers handled the COVID disruption. The Dodgers won the series. If you want the real insider story you have to read or listen to COVID Curveball An Inside View of the 2020 Los Angeles Dodgers World Championship Season.

A baseball fans MUST read !

Tim delivers in his journal of the 2020 COVID confused Major League Baseball season which resulted in a World Series championship for the Dodgers.

It all starts with Tim inspired on a walk in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with his wife Jess and chocolate lab Reggie and chronicles the challenges of broadcasting the unique baseball season ahead of him.

Tim highlights the games and players like Mookie Betts that brought the trophy home to Dodger Stadium.

For several seasons Tim broadcast on the Red Sox and talks of his days at Fenway as well.

Tim Neverett is a Nashua N.H. native and I was happy to be able to interview him about COVID CURVEBALL on my podcast.
