Perfect, Once Removed: When Baseball Was All the World to Me by Phillip Hoose
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Disguised as a nostalgic, coming-of-age baseball memoir, this is a sly, spare meditation on the perils of childhood, the power of celebrity, the vagaries of human kindness, and how even tenuous family bonds can have a surprisingly steely impact." Joe Pilla, Paperbacks Plus In pitch-perfect prose, and with a gift for conveying the fears and dreams of a young boy's life, Phil Hoose recalls the magical year of 1956, when his cousin, Don Larsen, pitched a perfect game in the World Series, and the game of baseball helped him take root in a tough new town. "Perfect, Once Removed "is a wondrous ode to the glory of baseball and to growing up."
