9: Recommendation: I think this is a great novel. The reason i think this is because it tells a great story about a pitcher that overcomes the fact that people look at him as a snob and shows he is really a good guy and great baseball player. This book always keeps you guessing and keeps you wanting to read more. I would recommend this book to whoever is interested in baseball.
