it was amazing

If you love baseball fiction this is the book for you. The story is about the crazy world of professional baseball. It is also about fathers and sons, forgiveness, love, redemption, and how to finally grow up. Showtime Charlie Stoddard thought his pitching career was over until he went to a specialist named Chang who fixed his backache and did an active release technique on his shoulder which took away years of pain. After more treatments pitching again becomes a real possibility for Charlie, but first he has to find a team that will give him a second chance. To complicate things more, the son he has neglected for years is now a pro pitcher who wants nothing to do with him. There are a lot more complications and plenty of laughs. This was my first Mike Lupica book and I really enjoyed it.
