Damn. I still don't really care for baseball, and the story could have used a few more female characters, but it was good. Can't put it down cos i wanna know what happens next kind of good.

I loved the characters in this book and felt their actions were believable and valid. Good story told with kindness and humour and the sort of book where you wish there was a sequel to find out what happens to the characters.
