Description

"The Bad News Bears" meets "Friday Night Lights". A powerful, unfiltered account of the passionate youth baseball culture in a decaying American city.

An aging and aimless bachelor agrees to help a local little league team and finds his life forever altered from the experience.

"Little Field, Big Time Baseball" is really two books in one.

An uplifting ride with a group of fiercely competitive pre-teen ballplayers and the every man dad who took them under his wing for 3 crazy seasons.

And also a cautionary tale of the excesses in American youth sports brought on by adults mentoring children in the ultimate kid's game.

Author Tim Mathers' first hand account of the high pressure sub-culture of youth sports in America will grip you from fhe first pitch to the last out. And be on your mind long after the season ends.
