I LOVE baseball and this book was a great baseball read. It might be fiction but it seemed like I was reading non-fiction!

Once I got passed the baseball play-by-play, the story actually picked up. Now his usual kind of story, but good nonetheless.

Good "up-lifting" story in a very short read.

Tried three times. Couldn't get past the first chapter. Perhaps a love of baseball is a requirement.

Started but not finished.

A short fictional story about a baseball hitter's brilliant career for the Chicago Cubs was cut short by one mediocre pitcher of the Mets. Not a big baseball nut, I find the story shallow and pointless.

I got this book out of the library because it is a Grisham. I know nothing about base ball, so, I was very surprised and impressed with this story. Grisham This is much, much more than a baseball story. It is a story of redemption, tolerance, and forgiveness. Grisham weaves together a wonderful story - that is not law related.
