“A triumphant debut; enthusiastically recommended for fans of literary fiction and great sports writing.”–Library Journal, starred review
“[Nemens] knows baseball, and that knowledge is on full view in this quirky first novel set in the world of Major League spring training in Arizona. Nemens finds a kind of attenuated hope along with melancholy in these sharply etched character studies that ‘end not with ‘out three’ but ‘out maybe.'”–Booklist, starred review
