“This audiobook will touch the veins of your heart.” (Bengie Molina, World Series Champion and author of New York Times best seller Molina)
In the mid-1990s, a band of baseball-loving boys from the small town of Chester, Illinois, on the banks of the Mississippi River, pursue their dreams of state and national championships. Their fathers, guards in the local penitentiary that houses some of the worst criminals in US history, are their coaches. One dream comes true - the other doesn’t.
This is the story of the dreams and of the town that made them possible. Filled with unforgettable anecdotes from perhaps the last (nearly) innocent age in America, The Sons of Chester recalls a childhood that in some sense is the 20th century’s version of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn.

Loved every second!
Loved the fact that this is a true story. The realness and style in the writing is exceptional. Seemed like I was living every moment along with the characters. I highly recommend this audiobook.

An Absolutely AMAZING Story - Love It
What an incredible story. It made me feel like I was right there with the boys, playing baseball, thinking about baseball (when they weren't playing), getting into trouble and dreaming of being State Champions. Overall, just boys being boys growing up in a small town and working hard to achieve something that had never been done before in their small town. This story will grab you and pull you right in. Enjoy the ride, it's a great one.
