Phantasy Baseball: It's About a Second Chance by John A. Hoda

When a Little League coach wins a trip to Phantasy Baseball Camp, it sets in motion an unforgettable season with his beloved Philadelphia Phillies. Joe DiNatale, a thirty-nine- year-old insurance agent from Reading Pennsylvania, discovers that he has a magical pitch and through luck and circumstance receives an improbable try-out. Nobody is prepared to handle the instant rock-star celebrity and this average joe has to hold on to his home-town values for dear life. The ride gets bumpy during the All-Star break on and off the field, setting the stage for an unforgettable finish.
From the simple act of a child and parent playing catch, to the bright lights of a packed big-league stadium, John A. Hoda captures the game and how it can intertwine itself into the fabric of a family and a community.
We pick up the story where Joe's picture-perfect marriage is crumbling, wrecked by his only child's drug and alcohol abuse. His last days as a little league coach ends with a surprise at the sports banquet. Little does Joe realize the real import of winning the grand prize.
In a world where second chances are few and precious, follow Joe's remarkable journey for a baseball season like no other. You will want to come along on Joe's magic carpet ride when you see that it's more than just what happens on the field.

This book was well written with excellent character development. You know it's good when you've finished the book and miss the characters! I keep thinking about everyone and wondering how they are doing! I'll miss reading the book tonight. The baseball games are detailed - you feel like you are in the stands, or listening to the game on the radio. Many times I was up past my bedtime because I couldn't wait to see what happened. Well worth reading - enjoy!
