Publisher's Summary

Chris Coste dreamed of playing major-league baseball from the age of seven. But after 11 grueling years in the minors, a spot on a major-league roster still seemed just out of his reach, until that fateful call came from the Philadelphia Phillies in May 2006. At age 33 (going on 80), Coste was finally heading to the big time.

The 33-Year-Old Rookie is a real-life Rocky, an unforgettable and inspirational story of one man's unwavering pursuit of a lifelong goal.

Beginning in a single-parent home in Fargo, North Dakota, and ending behind home plate on the flawless diamond of the Phillies Citizens Bank Park where fans and teammates call him Chris Clutch because of his knack for getting timely hits, this intimate account of Coste's baseball odyssey is a powerful story of determination, perseverance, and passion.

From tense stretch-run games that kept Phillies fans on the edge of their seats to moments of intimate personal reflection, Coste's saga offers baseball aficionados an inside look at a remarkable life and career. In this stirring, wry, and candid look at the life of a professional baseball nomad who never surrendered his dream, we savor the sometimes bittersweet fruits of victory against seemingly insurmountable odds.
