Playing the Baseball Card, a short novel by Wilson James




It's spring training, for major league baseball, and time to think about watching or playing.  This is also the time I celebrate the success of Playing the Baseball Card, and in particular the amazing reviews and ratings at the Apple iTunes bookstore.  This is one review (of many): 

Father and Husband 
     
by Umpire 24
In my 53 years of living this may be one of the most emotional books I personally have read. Being a big baseball fan and a father of a son who played baseball this book was awesome. I would think any baseball fan and father would love to read this, I actually had a good cry for the first time all during this book. Any if you have time this is a must read book!!
Here's the story:  You are almost 14 years old. Your mother died six years ago, and you help look after your younger brother while you father works. 


Your father is a pitcher for a minor league baseball team, and he is trying to make it into the major leagues. Just when it seems that things are looking better, tragedy strikes again. Now, it’s all up to you. You have your own dreams, and you desperately care about your small family. Will you be able to make it work? Just how much is a young teenage kid capable of doing, anyway?


Playing the Baseball Card is the story of Devin Robinson, the kid who dreams of pitching for the San Francisco Giants.  Find out how Devin and his younger brother, Jordan, made it though their early years, and how Devin tries to make his mark in a world of adults.  Find out how Devin's fierce determination to protect his remaining little family of two leads to adventure and achievement that he never thought possible.  Find out how Devin plays the Baseball Card.


This is a story for baseball fans and anyone else who wants to read about personal courage and determination.
