Baseball, humanity, passion, and integrity. These are legion on the pages of this monumental comic story for anyone ages 0-Infinity. I can't recommend this book any higher.

James Sturm’s excellent graphic novel provides a powerful look at Paige and his times; with evocative artwork from Rich Tommaso.
