Nostalgic in its view of pre-World War I America, a time before the "live" ball, a time filled with names like Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, and Eddie Cicotte, this is not a simple period piece. It is about competition, about the ability to reason, and most of all it is about being human.
A favorite of mine in print and audio
I've read this short book several times and enjoyed it. This audio version was fun because the reader brings a "country boy" inflection and expression which was perfect and brought the character to life.
