Known as a writer, illustrator and editor, Emily Nemens debuted her novel, The Cactus League, in February 2020. Humming with the energy of a ballpark before the first pitch, the storyline of her book unravels the star outfielder and other tightly connected people in the game. Narrated by a wise sportscaster, the story is interspersed with tales of multiple characters all striving to be seen and leaving the reader with a sense of hope and redemption.
