    " Probably closer to 3.5 stars. I liked the book and the story was very good....I guess it's the writing style that I didn't enjoy as much. "

    " Best baseball novel ever written. Period. Prequel to the more well known "Bang the Drum slowly". Robert De Niro starred in the movie version of this book. Also a great read. "

    " I'm not at all sure I read this but the name Henry Wiggen sure rings a bell. If I did read it it must have been long ago. Date read is a guess. I just realized this: Henry Wiggen rings a bell because of the movie "Bang the Drum Slowly". Same author... Did I read this book? Only a maybe now... "
