"Genuine and raw...a heartfelt work of despair, triumph, and redemption."
--Boston Globe

The critically acclaimed Heart of the Game--subtitled "Life, Death, and Mercy in Minor League America"--explores the pure roots of a sport that is stained by scandal at its highest level. S.L. Price, award-winning writer for Sports Illustrated and author of Pitching Around Fidel, gives a tragic but ultimately uplifting account of the death of minor league baseball coach Mike Coolbaugh, and in doing so, illustrates the many reasons and myriad ways in which baseball still has a hold on America. A Friday Night Lights for baseball fans, Heart of the Game reveals the classic heart of small-town America.
