Overview

Jorge loves the feel of the ball in his glove, the bat in his hand, and the game of baseball. He is as good as any right-handed hitter on the Casa Cuba team — but his father tells him, "Good isn't best."

"Baseball is a game of inches," his coach tells him. And when Casa Cuba is up against Club Caparra and their pitcher's sidearm rocket, a switch-hitter is just what Casa Cuba needs.

Based on the childhood of New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada, this is the story of a boy from Puerto Rico who worked hard to be his best and didn't stop until he was a champion.

A portion of the proceeds of this book will benefit the Jorge Posada Foundation.
