Touching short story about a man and his son's extraordinary little league game.
I read this after reading the author's exceptional book about Gettysburg. This story isn't quite as engaging and seems to be channelling Stephen King.
Hard to duplicate the master but I think McDaniels is worth staying with. Sep 02, Claire rated it really liked it. This short story is really well done and over too soon. In the space of just a few minutes this book made me care for these characters and the ending was amazing. For such a short book it took me on quite a journey. I'd like to read more books by Edison Daniels, if this book is anything to go by they'll all be a great read. I don't normally like it when the author narrates the story, there are professional narrators for a reason, it's hard to do it well.
In this case it works, the authors passion This short story is really well done and over too soon.

Well done Edison. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. Sep 09, Jane rated it it was amazing. This heart rending story about a baseball game gone tragically wrong will haunt every parent, and yet it is beautifully told by an author who expertly blends the simplicity of a father's recalling of his son's greatest baseball triumph with the terror of a freak accident and just enough of the paranormal to give it all meaning.
A hauntingly beautiful short story. Aug 28, Donna Agnelly rated it really liked it. A short novella - this really is a touching story. The author uses his medical background to flesh out this small story and although it is small it packs in a lot. Very touching. There are angels among us!
Notre Dame Baseball Makes a Huge Statement with Series Win over #9 LSU
Even if you aren't a fan of baseball, you'll be a fan of this. Heartbreakingly intense, without being overwhelming. Engaging in way beyond words. And the ending? They won convincingly and damn near swept the series. In game one, the Irish took a lead into the bottom of the sixth.

One more LSU swing of the bat, this time a three run blast, in the bottom of the eight put the Tigers up for good to complete the comeback. The LSU bullpen did masterful work as well. Matthew Beck and Austin Bain combined for 4. Game two appeared to follow the exact same script. The Irish again jumped on LSU starting pitching early, knocking starter Zack Hess out in the third inning which featured seven runs, staking the Irish to a lead. Then, freshman starter, Tommy Sheehan, coughed up a three run fourth, but followed it up with a fifth. Shane Combs came in for a very rough relief performance, walking the only two batters he faced.
A familiar face for Irish football fans, Cole Kmet, came in for four innings of shutout, one-hit ball, earning his first career save. With a couple insurance runs in the ninth, another feature missing from game one, the Irish ended with a solid win. Notre Dame skipper, Mik Aoki, rotated through seven pitchers for a combined effort that saw LSU score put zero crooked numbers on the board in a single inning. In fact, only one Irish pitcher surrendered more than one hit—the only Irish pitching issues on the day were self-inflicted with walks. Without two large swings of the bat and an other-worldly bullpen effort from LSU, the Irish could very well be looking at a start to the season.
But taking two games, on the road, from a top ten team is nothing to be disappointed about. Regardless, I saw this series as being a good measuring stick for what the Irish have this season.
