This is a great story for a lot of reasons. It's very well written, captivating (regardless of whether you are a baseball fan or not I think), motivational, and touching.
The story is about a great young baseball player from a small town in the midwest whose professional baseball career with the Dodgers is put on hold because of WWII. He plays baseball for the Navy during the war, but then things don't work out as he imagined they would.

Pamela I loved Wait Till Next Year, Doris Kearns Goodwin's memoir centered on the great Brooklyn Dodgers, and am guessing that you would, too.
