Part love song to baseball, part autobiography, part a recounting of his son's senior year in high school, this book delivers its tributes elegantly. A columnist for the Boston Globe, Shaughnessy (The Curse of the Bambino) melds an account of his own coming of age with that of son Sam, who struggles to make his mark at the game his father has made a profession out of covering. In dissecting Sam's trials and triumphs, Shaughnessy recollects his own, in athletics and elsewhere in life. Sure to be a popular title for all public libraries.
