Natl Book Network, February 2002. Trade Paperback. Used - Very Good. Item #206425
A story with a heart of gold about love and the loss of innocence at the bottom of the most minor league in baseball--the class D Alabama-Florida League in the 1950s, with a sour old maverick manager, a yearning teenage second baseman, and a black catcher masquerading as a Venezuelan. "A first-rate novel."--Newsweek. "A sharp, unsentimental portrait of the minor league life...and Hemphill makes it all come to life, believably and memorably."--Sports Illustrated. "So good, so true, so funny..."--New York Times Book Review.
