Eighth graders had a graduation T-shirt made for him, and he wore a lime green shirt to match the track team's shirt when he attended track meets.

Mark Fainru-Wada and Lance Williams, authors of "Game of Shadow," are in an awkward position for any writer or journalist. Instead of interviewing, these San Francisco Chronicle reporters are the ones being interviewed. Instead of reporting the news, they have become news. They were even guests on "Late Show with David Letterman." The Hays Public Library has a copy of this controversial new book and dozens of other baseball books for you to enjoy this summer. Stop by the library this week to check them out. While you are there, take a look at this month's Kansas Room display of books about baseball in Kansas and another display on local baseball teams. Fainru-Wada and William's book documents widespread steroid use by athletes throughout sports, most notably by Sand Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds. The authors, according to the paper employing them, are not complaining about all the attention they have received. Writers write to be read, and their book is flying off shelves. But they don't enjoy being part of the steroid story their book reveals and the furor that it has created in the baseball world. Fainru-Wada and Williams say they realize that many fans are upset with their book. The two suggest that people don't want to believe that the use of performance-enhancing drugs is so prevalent. Many fans refuse to acknowledge it. Williams struggled with it himself. He considers himself a baseball fan. He usually attends about 10 games per year but stayed away for nearly two seasons after learning the extent to which drug use had permeated the game. This story isn't going to go away, not with baseball's investigation getting under way and not since Bonds has now passed Babe Ruth and is chasing Hank Aaron on the career home-run list. That means, awkward or not, they will continue to be at least a part of this story. Their book is a popular one at the library; if it's not on the shelf, the library staff will put it on hold and call you when it's available.
