Third Base for Life: A Memoir of Fathers, Sons, and Baseball

Length: 362 pages5 hours


Each and every summer since 1996, ten thousand elite players from California to Florida visit Dreams Park in upstate New York to measure themselves against the very best. Five hundred thousand a year of their close family and friends follow suit to witness the unrivaled quality of play in the heated contest. Third Base for Life is the first-hand account of how an ordinary father who had not played baseball since Little League managed to put together a team of ordinary kids and somehow gained admittance to a world where they simply do not belong.

It's the true story of twelve ragtag and outmatched fourth-grade boys from a small Jewish day school in Newton, Massachusetts who band together to challenge the top ten-year-old baseball talent in the country at Cooperstown Dreams Park, one of the nation's most prestigious youth tournaments. It's the Bad News Bears meets The Chosen in this humorous, yet poignant, memoir.
