Jon Sindell writes fiction in San Francisco and reads his work publicly throughout the Bay Area. He is a personal tutor in English and history, he was a dot-com editor and lawyer. The author of the baseball (and more) novel The Mighty Roman cried at six when the Dodgers blew the pennant, found strength on the mound at the age of eleven, rashly quit the baseball team at fifteen, and was reborn as a ballplayer in his thirties. He lives with his wife and near fledglings, and spends non-writing time hiking the Northern California coast, hugging redwoods, growing greens, and watching way too much baseball. He encourages readers to connect with him at Jon Sindell Fiction – where lots of his fiction may be viewed -- or on Facebook.

This is a very short story about a manager and his bat he affectionately calls "THOR." The name is capitalized in the story to emphasize the power in both the bat and its owner. While "Light Tower Power" by Jon Sindall was very short, it made its point in a big way. During batting practice the manager decides to take a hack himself with THOR. What happens leaves a lasting impression. A baseball fan who wants a quick read will enjoy this title. Four stars out of five.
