Mike Lupica's "The Big Field" - a Book Talk with Elizabeth Dotson-Shupe
A baseball novel by Mike Lupica is as much fun as an afternoon double-header, and if this one isn't an over-the-centerfield fence grand-slam, it's definitely an inside-the-park homer.

Jun 28.I really liked this book because I love baseball and this book centers around that but I also love to read about drama which is present in Hutch's relationship with his dad throughout the book.
