Descripción editorial

10 Year old Bobby McRainey tells of the day to day struggles as a batboy on a losingest team ever! But, when his 1951 ball club signs 5 Negro Leaguers and integrates Southern Baseball, Bobby discovers that even losing teams can have immortal moments.

Through a long hot summer, the Graniteers sweat out a 14 – 96 season. New coaches, a name change (to the Granite Rocks) and even ‘Black Cat Night at Granite Falls Stadium' cannot turn things around. When Bobby finds an unhittable ‘Cuban’ pitcher is really an American born black man, he struggles with the unfairness of "Whites Only" baseball.

Publishers Weekly called the book ‘beguiling.' “There are some very pleasant moments (and perhaps even a Denzel Washington movie) in this novel … based on the incredible true story of the worst team in Baseball History that became the first Southern team to break the color barrier."
