Everyone deserves a second chance, right? Charlie Stoddard, the Boston Red Sox baseball star pitcher of late, messed up his arm and has never been able to pitch like he has before. Five years have passed and while getting drunk most every night and having one night stands with numerous girls, Charlie meets this mysterious physical therapist who "fixes" Charlies arm. Charlie goes back to pitch for Boston alongside his son who absolutely loathes him and stars again for the time being. Although centered around a Boston pitcher, Mike Lupica does a nice job of creating a baseball fiction based story.
