The book also weaves in some of the history of the city of Turlock as it is connected to the football program and tells the story of several of the players in their post-football days. It also highlights the growing pains the city went through as it transitioned from a small agricultural town and into a larger commuter-based city.

Players spotlighted include former pro football players from Turlock - Bob Mitchell, Paul Larson, Jeff Winans, Jonathan Quinn, Tom Brandstater and Colin Kaepernick - along with moments in the history of Turlock connected to the football program.

There is an official website [3] connected to the book that continues recording the history of football in Turlock from the end of the 2014 season to present day. From The Fields recently passed an editorial review by the Stanislaus County Library and is part of the library's Special Collections section.[4]
