Summary
Portrays the life of the author's father, whose budding baseball career with the Brooklyn Dodgers never recovered after his stint as a sailor in World War II, during which he taught top-secret German prisoners of war how to play baseball
Summary
Gene Moore, from tiny Sesser, Illinois, was signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers at age 15 in 1940. Before that could happen, World War II intervened. Gene's journey from promise to despair and back again, set against a long war and an even longer post-war recovery, retains every bit of its vitality and relevance. A 20th-century epic that demonstrates how, sometimes, letting go of a dream is the only way to discover one's great fortune
