You don't have to be a baseball fan to enjoy PASTIME. The notion of taking a star baseball player of today and sending him back in time to play baseball in a different era is brilliant! Everything is suddenly very different for the hero of the story, and therein lies the strength of the narrative. He learns what it's like to play the game when it wasn't all about the money - and he learns the importance of caring about someone other than himself and the stats that he accumlates. The book is truly an exploration of human values wrapped inside an exciting run to the World Series. I think the book would make a great movie.
