McGough's story of life in a supporting role in a major league clubhouse avoids being merely an homage to his baseball heroes. Rather, it is surprisingly entertaining and filled with interesting stories. Jason Harris also gives a fine performance. Harris understands the awe that kids feel toward professional athletes, and his reading brings that exuberance to the fore. Harris deftly conveys McGough's thrills and disappointments as he discovers that some of his heroes deserve adulation, while others are cads. In short, the publisher made a wise choice of audio narrator, and Harris's listeners will be glad of it. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
