Publisher's Summary

It's 1948, and the National League certified since 1903 Boston Braves haven't won a pennant in 20 years. But from out of nowhere, newcomer Jason Stiller looks to change all that.

All Jason wants is to go out and hit the ball a mile, but with the Braves' star pitcher as a rival, the steely-eyed manager watching him like a hawk, and the beautiful owner's daughter about to cause The Kid to go head over heels...what's a rookie to do?

And then with the World Series in sight, when Braves owner Robert P. Germane decides to really throw The Kid a curveball, will Jason be able to hang onto what's really important - figure out what dreams are really worth believing in?

Following a fictional baseball team in a very real moment in American history, The Kid encapsulates those forgotten baseball playing dreams we've all had at one time or another.

Step onto the horsehide with Jason, heft a Louisville Slugger...and remember what it's like to swing for the fences.

Recording needs some work

While the story was entertaining, the recording quality was SO distracting it was hard to enjoy some of the high points of the storyline.
