The Art Of Fielding by Chad Harbach

The Art of Fielding

This is the stuff dreams are made of.  A high school prodigy gets scouted by a small Wisconsin college whose baseball team is long on losing seasons.  The prodigy, Henry Skrimshander,  enters the world of Westish College where tradition reigns and the lessons learned are more than what’s found in your standard textbook.

I loved this book.  You don’t have to even LIKE baseball to enjoy it.  The characters are well-developed and leave you cheering and hurting for them simultaneously.  Harbach is one of those wonderful writers who is capable of depth AND a gripping plot all at the same time.  If you haven’t yet read this one, I highly recommend it!
