Review

[T]errific [R]eading this book will make you fall in love with baseball all over again. The Denver Post
One of the best sportswriters alive. USA Today
Feinstein s work, like that of the best American sportswriters, is richly detailed and emotionally articulate...Feinstein's storytelling is compelling, his understanding of the structural cruelties and emotional consequences of winner-takes-all competition acute. The Guardian (UK)
Feinstein takes readers down the dusty roads of minor league baseball with a vivid look at the players dreaming of a shot at the big leagues.
Parade
John Feinstein, one of our best-known sportswriters, explores baseball s International League, one of the two AAA leagues, just below the majors .With many of us counting down to opening day, this is a fitting time for a book whose subtitle might well be hope springs eternal every spring.
The Washington Post
[P]oignant [2013] marked the 25th anniversary of Bull Durham, and I m pretty sure a lot of people still think that's how things go in the minors. Mr. Feinstein clears the perspective on the realities of minor-league life so that the reader can move on from Nuke LaLoosh imagery. And for the average baseball fan, this is no minor accomplishment.
