Twelve-year-old Peter Lee and his family are baseball lovers, who bond over back lot games and talk of the Pittsburgh Pirates. But when tragedy strikes, the family flies apart and baseball no longer seems to matter. Is that true? Peter wonders if just maybe the game they love can pull them together and bring them back, safe at home.
Issues of sexism, racism, and struggles with depression are handled deftly in scenarios grounded in reality,
including an ending that’s hopeful without being pat.

This is a fine story of family, loss, growing up
and learning to play baseball...
