Book Description

Philly flees from the abuse of his dysfunctional childhood home. Blaming himself for the sin of molest, he fears dreadful punishment and wanders to various experiences--life on the streets as a runaway, children's shelter, juvenile hall, and eventually prison. Through it all he never relinquishes an unlikely hobby, throwing a baseball at a target. Designed only to relieve his churning emotions, the fetish achieves much more, a chance at the major leagues.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Philly May 30, 2013
By Juliana
I could not put this book down. The story of this brave and talented boy is very moving with a surprising turn around every corner. If you love baseball and admire talent and perseverance, you will love this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars I had trouble putting this down August 31, 2013
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author has some interesting insights on the plight of children brought up in poverty and who have suffered abuse.
