Anyway, what a book! In these dark days of winter, “Shoeless Joe” did an excellent job of reminding me why this game is special, and why baseball has become a lifelong obsession for me. Also, now that I have a son, the story was even more captivating for me.
If you get a chance to read this novel, don’t miss it.
