About Austin Gisriel

"One of the very first baseball games that I ever went to, which was at old Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, ended when Brooks Robinson drove in the winning run in the bottom of the 9th. I've been a fan and a believer ever since!" says Austin Gisriel who applies his writing talents to the Grand Old Game.

A graduate of Wesley Theological Seminary, Gisriel is fascinated by the moment-to-moment composition of Life, a concept inherent in every baseball game.

“Each moment gives direction and meaning to the next,” says Gisriel.

Gisriel is the author of Boots Poffenberger: Hurler, Hero, Hell-Raiser, as well as Safe at Home: A Season in the Valley among other baseball books and essays.

A Board of Directors member of the New Market Rebels, a summer collegiate team in the Valley Baseball League, Gisriel’s baseball commentary can be heard every Thursday on “Gordy’s Sports World” on ESPN1380 in Greencastle, PA.

Gisriel is married to the former Martha Pratt. They have two daughters, Rebecca and Sarah, either one of whom would have been named Brooks had she been a boy.
