This is not a baseball story. The grandstand does not rise as one man and shout itself hoarse with joy. There isn't a three-bagger in the entire 3,000 words, and nobody is carried home on the shoulders of the crowd. Instead this is a story by the talented Edna Ferber about a small town in America and the hopes and dreams of those people we meet every day, even now. Full of hope and dreams.
