    The Batboy   by Mike Lupica

    2011 Hardcover. Very gently used, in very good condition.


    It is every baseball kid's dream summer job: batboy for your hometown Major League team.  Yet for fourteen year-old Brian, the job means more than just the chance to hang around his idols.  Baseball was the job his father loved so much, in the end he couldn't leave it.  Yet he could leave his family.  Now Brian sees the job as the way to win back his father.


    There is no winning back some people, though. J ust ask Hank Bishop -- once the most popular player in baseball before he was banned for using steroids.  Now he is making his comeback.  An unlikely friendship slowly develops between this man in need of a family and this boy in need of a father.
