"This poignant story, illustrated with soft pencil and watercolors, will grab the hearts of baseball fans everywhere." — Chicago Sun-Times

Oliver Hall loves baseball, and he loves the ritual of listening to Grandpa Hall’s innumerable baseball stories. But one day Oliver makes a startling discovery. It seems his grandfather has kept one very special story a secret: his own. Matt Tavares hits the ball out of the park with this luminously illustrated tale about the joy of baseball, intergenerational bonds, and the immutable power of dreams.
