Caryn Rose is a Brooklyn-based writer and photographer who documents rock and roll, baseball and urban life.

From 2006-2011, she authored the groundbreaking blog metsgrrl.com, covering baseball and the New York Mets. Her first novel, B-sides and Broken Hearts, was published in 2011, followed by the non-fiction work Raise Your Hand: Adventures of an American Springsteen Fan In Europe in September of 2012. A Brand New Ballgame is her second novel.

You can find her at jukeboxgraduate.com and on Twitter at @carynrose and at @metsgrrl during the season. She believes bunting is for losers, hates the designated hitter, and thinks you should never walk the pitcher.

I was happily off the clock last weekend at the Springsteen show in Brooklyn, until Bruce opened with “Purple Rain.” By the time the show hit “Backstreets” I had an idea of what I thought I wanted to say, and woke up Sunday morning and basically let the piece write itself. My debut for NPR Music.
