We borrowed this book from our church library and our elementary age kids liked it so much that we bought a copy for home. This is the inspirational story of a baseball pitcher who developed cancer in his arm, made a dramatic comeback and shortly thereafter had to leave professional baseball. The player had to reconcile the loss of his lifelong dream with God's different plan for him. After reading this the first time, my kids and I looked at Dave Dravecky's website and were able to see pictures of him (now without one arm) and read about his ministry. My husband already knew his story so when he got home he told us about his amazing comeback.

This is a wonderful story of courage and inspiration..good for children who love the game of baseball.
