Mr. Mann takes you on a wonderful journey into the life of small town America. His love of baseball and its history enable him to imbue a nobility to the fans, the players and the town of Clinton that I found to be heartwarming. We also get a glimpse at the psyche of the author as he tells the story of these people but also tells us a lot about his own story as well. A terrific first novel from someone i hope to read more from in the future.

I got an early review copy of this from a friend, and I loved it. The writing is incredible, and I love the author's approach. So much memoir, particularly dealing with sports, just feels like journalism, but Mann is very present in this story. It made it so much more personal and compelling because I cared about what happened to him and the parralels he draws between the town, the players and himself. I will say this isn't as baseball focused as I'd thought it be, which is great for me! I mean, it's all about this team and baseball, but you don't have to be a fan  at all. Also, if you're looking for this to be like a sports illustrated thing, you're looking in the wrong place. I'd call this honest literary fiction, straight-up. Wonderful!
