Reviews

"Tim Wendel's love and impressive knowledge of baseball suffuses every page of this passionate novel of love, loss, and the real freedom that wisdom and time sometimes bring."--Ken Burns, coauthor of Baseball: An Illustrated History
"A Cuba libre mixed with baseball, revolution, and moonlight, wonderfully evocative of a time that was and a pitcher that might have been."--Frank Deford, author of Everybody's All-American
"In this first novel, well-known sportswriter and radio commentator Wendel explores the legend that Fidel Castro could've been a contender in America's major leagues. . . . Beautifully written, and with a ring of truth to it."--Library Journal
"A superbly crafted meditation on heroism, duty, and the irony derived from recognizing everyone's imperfections but your own."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
