Young Tom Hughes has little or no say about his future. Torn between the forces of poverty and hi dependence on the acceptance of the Catholic Church, he has no easy path to follow. Mixed in with this situation is his love of his drunken Irish father, his fear of his German grandfather and his deep love of the American game of baseball.
Although this story is more than 100 years old, it is a story still played out everyday in modern America. The country of origin may have changed,
but immigrants still face the social changes, the lack of acceptance, the poverty and technological changes that may render them obsolete as workers.
