I liked this book, but I was a bit disappointed with what I believed the title promised, and what was actually in it. I thought it would be a lot more insight from the author and his time with the players profiled. Instead, I found this to be 9 mini biographies of players he had admired. The bat boy days piece didn't really impact me. But, I did like the 9 mini biographies, so it wasn't a waste of time, especially considering what a quick read it is!

Recommends it for: Baseball Fans
Garvey was my first sports hero as a kid (I'll never forget his gamewinning homerun off of Lee Smith in the 84 playoffs!). And the book is about the 50s Brooklyn Dodgers. A truly great team! So these facts alone give it 3 stars. It's pretty basic, and Garvey's moralizing is empty and lame, but there are interesting stories and facts in it. An easy and fun read, if you are a baseball fan.
Enjoyable, quick read; recommended for middle-school-aged baseball fans.
A fun book to read for those of us baseball fans 50 years old and older.
