Description
No longer a candidate for baseball greatness himself if he ever was Dennis accepts the challenge of smuggling a hot left-handed pitcher out of Cuba in the hope that promoting the greatness of another will somehow confer a small, manageable portion of it on himself. A novel of last-ditch hopes, destiny's curve balls, and quiet redemption, The Cuban Prospect projects a vision at once humorous, harrowing, and affirming.
