really liked it
bookshelves: baseball, fiction, historical-fiction

Good, short, genuinely moving story about old wounds, redemption, and baseball. Also has some pretty potent themes of father-son relationships and boyhood hero worship. One or two false notes near the end keep it from five stars for me, but otherwise very good.
