Just when you think you are reading what seems like an autobiography of a professional athlete you soon discover that what you are really reading is a beautifully written, heartfelt story about love.In its purest and simplest form It begins with the love of Baseball, continues with real friendship and the seedy underbelly of sports and ends with the possibility of true love and forgiveness Its a beautiful story.I loved it.
