Fred Bowen is a “KidsPost” sports columnist for The Washington Post and the author of “Perfect Game” (Peachtree Press), the latest in his children’s sports fiction series. He has enjoyed sports his entire life and says his “best childhood memories are from playing Little League in the park and basketball on the playground.” In every story he writes he incorporates real sports history. During college he majored in history, and says he loves sports history “because of all the great dramas and big personalities.”
