Upon reading this book one is amazed at the dedication and sacrifice Chris and his family endured in pursuing his dream. The book's inside look at what's it's like to try and make 'the show,' despite all of the obstacles will turn you into a Chris Coste fan if you're not one already. With his solid collegiate, minor league and spring training performances you can't help but question why it took him so long to make it, and also wonder how many more like him that didn't.

The 33-Year-Old-Rookie is an autobiography by a man who lives baseball. Chris Coste¿s dream was to play in the MLB. Throughout his childhood, playng ball is what he lived for. He lived in Fargo, North Dakota with not much of a family, and not a lot of money. Growing up with a baseball fan in his grandad, his mind was set on that sport. Through school he played ball, and frankly, was good. Chris played almost every position at a high level. Where he was didn¿t help the cause of recuituring so he went off to college. After becoming Division III Champs and playing a mens league..he got to the minors. Coste spent 11 years in a minor league uniform with a couple different major league times, his 11 years were very prouductive. He was 33 and had to keep fightingor his dream will be thrown in the trash. His story inspires baseball fans acrosss the U.S. Reading an autobiography was but different but nice. The reader becomes inside his head, going through his emotions. This story left me dumbfounded in a good way. I understood what he went through and how hard it was to try to reach your dreams. I recommend this book to all sports fan, not just baseball supporters. It shows ¿determinations, drive, and perserverance,¿ is how Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. put this book.Was this review helpful?
