“Hilarious and deeply touching . . . Not a baseball book any more than Field of Dreams is a baseball book, this moving, beautiful novel resonates with laughter and tears throughout.” ―Don Oldenburg, USA Today
“If it’s annoying that Mr. Duchovny, who’s already a phenomenally successful and painfully good-looking actor is also a funny and natural writer―his last book, the animal allegory Holy Cow, also earned high praise from skeptical critics―then at least give him some points for self-awareness. Like his character in Californication, Mr. Duchovny knows how he comes off and doesn’t mind if you resent him. He just wants a fair shake . . . Mr. Duchovny spoke to the Observer about writing, acting and the shocking demise of the wondrous Garry Shandling.” ―Ken Kurson, NY Observer
“Duchovny has hit this one out of the park . . . he does a terrific job of blending quirky and emotional writing.” ―The Associated Press
“Duchovny finds the humor and poetry in life’s lost causes.” ―Entertainment Weekly
“Duchovny’s hilarious new novel hits a home run . . . As fast as it is entertaining . . . Duchovny has a place in the lineup, kind of like a light-hitting shortstop who shines in key moments.” ―Micah Pollack, The Washington Post
“Even people who hate the Red Sox will love this book. David Duchovny knows his baseball, but more important, he loves his fathers and sons. A touching delight.” ―Gary Shteyngart

This book is incredibly honest, painful, hilarious, shocking and beautiful, filled with a love for language and words, poetry and human nature - the little quirks about people that make life, and inevitably this book so very fascinating & interesting; by delving into topics such as illness, death, family, forgiveness, sex and yes, Baseball of course... the very connection like a thread that brings the two protagonists Ted and Marty back together as father and son.. Duchovny has really hit a nerve... definitely in me... and I think anyone reading this masterpiece will feel the same.
I think that this is a book for young (not too young -18+) and old(er) - it is timeless... it is a great look into human nature and its pretty, colourful and also its dark, ugly sides...
Thank you Mr. Duchovny! I shall read this one again... just because it is so damn good!!
This is the backdrop to the book. In essence will a dying father and a soon-to-be middle-aged son reconcile in the midst of an important pennant race?
There is a lot more going on here than baseball and I think you will enjoy it.
