I love Mike Lupica's writing and buy each of his books as soon as I can get my hands on them! I am so disappointed and somewhat upset that he felt it necessary to turn this into a political statement. I read fiction to disappear into magical worlds, not to have a visceral reaction to the author's view of social justice. As the focus of the book turned away from the game, I had no interest in continuing. I cannot recommend this book.

This book is about sports but extends beyond the playing field. There are topical issues but it's baseball, family and friendship that makes the story so enjoyable. If I could I would go to every game this team plays...when they took the field, I felt like I was there.
