Enjoyable read. I liked the interplay between the two authors, though I did feel like the ending was rushed.

It's definitely a book meant for baseball fans, but the themes run deep beyond the game: winning and losing, breaking past tradition to implement new ideas, chasing a dream. It's an enjoyable ride from start to finish, with Miller and Lindbergh (they alternate writing chapters) sharing their thoughts on baseball, life, and the deep connections they make with baseball. Go Sonoma Stompers.
