It is every baseball kid’s dream summer job: batboy for your hometown
Major League team. Yet for fourteen-year-old Brian, the job means more than
just the chance to hang around his idols. Baseball was the job his
father loved so much, in the end he couldn’t leave it. Yet he could
leave his family. Now Brian sees the job as the way to win back his
father. There is no winning back some people, though. Just ask Hank
Bishop—once the most popular player in baseball before he was banned for
using steroids. Now he is making his comeback. And an unlikely
friendship slowly develops between this man in need of a family and this
boy in need of a father. Mike Lupica, king of the sports novel,
delivers his most powerful and kid-friendly to date.
