Review by: Daniel Bell (Fantasy Man Dan) on Dec. 5, 2012 :
Congrats! You hit this little gem out of the park. It reminds me so much of my own youthful ‘Do or Die’ instances, staring down a pitcher who meant to blow me out of the game without a second thought. Then wham! The swing of the bat brings you that little magical moment where you get to live the dream you love and come to know without a shadow of doubt that somewhere within, you have something special to give.

The rookie was an excellent flash fiction. From the first word to the last I was hooked and dragged along. Excellent read. Great ending. Keep up the good work.
