Teresa Strasser, BA 1992

Emmy-Award winning television writer Teresa Strasser recently published her second book, Making It Home: Life Lessons From a Season of Little League (Penguin), a memoir about one season of Little League baseball she spent with her father after her brother died of cancer at age 47. Named one of the Best Books of 2023 by USA Today, the memoir covers 16 games she spent in the bleachers with her dad watching her oldest son play ball and turning the American Pastime into a grief group of two. Called “moving, funny, sad, and hopeful” by the Arizona Republic, it was also named Sports Book of the Year by the American Writing Awards.
