The characters I liked were Micky Cochrane, Gabby Hartnett and Bill Dicky. They were my favorite because they were some of the best catchers at that time.
When I read the book I felt sad for some of the catchers. I especially felt bad for Micky Owen when he was playing for the Dodgers. They were one strike away from winning the World Series against the Yankees when he let a ball get past him. Then the Yankees rallied and went on to win the World Series!
This book reminds me of my life because in Farm League Baseball I liked playing catcher. It also reminds me of watching games on TV with my dad.
I recommend this book to 2nd-4th graders. People who like baseball and baseball historians will like this book.
