This weekend is the Printer's Row Litfest, near the UIC campus in Chicago. I won't be able to make it down there because of a few other engagements, but two Eckhartz Press books will be there.

A lot of scouts see Hoerner more as a second baseman than a shortstop, but he should definitely be able to stay up the middle.
