The author, a player in his youth, is persuaded to coach a Seattle little league team, with utterly disastrous results. Losing every game is only the beginning. It is the mix of heroics and tragedy in lower case, the torments and the injustices, the rain, mud, the charm of each young player, and the coach's reflections on subjects from Plato to giftedness, that render this book unforgettable.
