Overview

Aging, divorced, and alone, Dorsey McWhorter signs a free-agent contract with the Cleveland Indians, placing him on the launching pad for an apparent career-ending tailspin. As Dorsey confronts his private demons, a simple lesson comes to mind once taught him by Walter Mobley, a former Negro Leagues player and his mentor. Dorsey embraces the lesson, remembering how it worked in the past, and experiences an epiphany. Dorsey suddenly becomes the hottest hitter in baseball, putting together a consecutive games hitting streak that rivals Joe DiMaggio's record of 56. In the process he rediscovers the joy of baseball and begins to find happiness off the field. The Streak isn't just a baseball novel, rather a study of one man's struggle to regain a life that didn't turn out as planned. Dorsey McWhorter is a memorable character readers will identify with and pull for because of his offbeat views and, foremost, his heart.

After reading Bill Chastain's recent non-fiction book, 'Payne at Pinehurst: The Best U.S. Open Ever', I decided to try his novel, 'The Streak.' I loved it! Chastain writes with a lot of heart and you fall in love with his characters. If you want a nice summer read (I read the book while I was at the beach), I strongly recommend 'The Streak.'
