This is the first Feinstein book I've read and after reading I may need to tackle more in the future. Feinstein follows the trials and struggles of various baseball players (and some umpires as well) trying to get out of the minors and show their skills on a major league field. Many people, even ones who follow baseball closely, are unaware of how difficult it is to come up through the minors and make a major league team. This book does a magnificent job of describing what certain players go through, chronicling the ups as well as the major downs that these guys experience. Probably the quote that sums up the book the best is uttered by former Triple-A manager Ron Johnson to players that complain about being in the minors: "If you don't like it here, do a better job."
