After leaving a career in television on MTV News, Tabitha Soren decided to follow another passion: photography. One of her passion projects is profiled in Fantasy Life: Baseball and the American Dream, a new book featuring her photos with help from best-selling author Dave Eggers. In 2002, Soren began photographing a group of minor leaguers in the Oakland A's system and followed these players through their baseball careers, on and off the field. Some left the sport, while others are still playing. Also, Eggers contributes five short stories detailing the roller coaster ride that many minor leaguers experience, from disappointments to a call-up to the majors.
