"2001: A Baseball Odyssey began as an informative look at a season of professional baseball in Taiwan for Bo Durkac, a seven-year veteran of professional baseball. Although brief, his stint in the Orient offers a cross-cultural tale of the many differences--both on the field and off--he experienced in his search for the financial compensation unavailable to him in the USA. The author's return to the minor leagues in California came to represent a soul-searching, and, at times, comical, look at the daily life of his new team, the Sonoma County Crushers. As his squad struggled against big hitting teams, he and a small core of experienced players held together a less-than-talented group of younger athletes which then challenged the top teams to compete for the playoffs of the independent Western Baseball League.
