Dean Evers sees all his old friends and enemies at the baseball game as he watches on his big screen TV. Not unusual you say? Well it wouldn't be if they weren't all dead. The story is short, it's succinct and to the point. Dean leaves New England and his beloved Red Sox and moves to Florida, the land of the Devil Rays. The story takes place over just a couple of days but embraces the entire lifetime of Dean Evers as he watches baseball on TV and is haunted by Faces in the Crowd, faces of those he has wounded or who have injured him, faces that logic says just couldn't be there. Stephen King fans will love it, as it was definitely a creepy Stephen King ending. ( )

I liked this story, and thought it was pretty creepy. Seeing dead friends and family members behind the plate during a televised baseball game is freaky enough for me! But the story ends super abruptly, almost as if by accident. I was shocked that I had reached the end! As for the purchase of this story on Kindle, I want to warn y'all that this story is short and only takes up about 57% of the purchase! The rest is excerpt from 'The Talisman' and 'Black House', which I for one already own. What a gip! But the story? Short, but good! ( )

This has a feeling of King's version of the Dickens classic 'A Christmas Carol'. Interesting take, and I always appreciate incorporating baseball into the story being a huge baseball fan myself. This is extremely short, and meant to be read in under an hour. ( )

Clever. Enjoyable, even if you're not a baseball fan. Not his best work, but ultimately readable and fun. ( )

Dean Evers is a lonely man since his wife died. He spends a lot of time watching the Rays play ball. When he begins seeing friends sitting in the stands behind home plate he doesn't get excited like most people would-he gets scared. That's because the old friends are dead. Each game is a new old face.

Only Stephen King can turn a baseball game into a scary story. A quick and easy read. ( )

Book description
Dean Evers, an elderly widower, sits in front of the television with nothing better to do than waste his leftover evenings watching baseball. It’s Rays/Mariners, and David Price is breezing through the line-up. Suddenly, in a seat a few rows up beyond the batter, Evers sees the face of someone from decades past, someone who shouldn’t be at the ballgame, shouldn’t be on the planet. And so begins a parade of people from Evers’s past, all of them occupying that seat behind home plate. Until one day Dean Evers sees someone even eerier...
