If you love baseball stories and overcoming adversity, this book is for you. He takes you from his early days hitting balls in his backyard right through the major league. Amazing how such a standout player can be overlooked by everyone in baseball, as he was drafted as a favor to his father in the 62nd round by the LA Dodgers. His hard work, perseverance, and belief in himself eventually carried the day. Mikes's language can be a little rough at times for very young readers, but it does fit the context of his story. I especially liked it because Mike is the narrator which makes it more personal. Aspiring young players will get a mental boost from listening to this program.
Narrator did an excellent job

Dissapointed that the book did not cover his full life story
