Editorial Reviews

Review


“A great book that captures the essence of baseball and every boy’s dream: to play in the major leagues. The story of John Paciorek is the stuff of legends.”
Gary Adams, former UCLA baseball coach

“By perfect illogical fate, John Pacorek's 1.000 career batting average for one day's work in the big leagues is really more the measure of a man who came to understand that the baseball Gods simply threw him a proverbial curve ball. It can't be explained, yet Steve Wagner’s chronicling of that day does it, and makes you wonder more why John, and not Moonlight Graham, wasn’t the perfect person to have in the movie Field of Dreams.”
Tom Hoffarth, columnist, Los Angeles Daily News
