In this charming and thought-provoking "tale of two seasons", lifetime baseball enthusiast Greg Mitchell reflects on the profound emotional conflict and ineffable joys Little Leaguers can face. He underscores his experience with life lessons and hilarious anecdotes gleaned from managing his son's teams -- the last-place Red Sox and the miracle A's.Mitchell also steps up to the plate and knocks the cover off timely issues surrounding Little League today. Through interviews with busy parents, respected experts, and celebrity Little League dads, Mitchell examines the father/son relationship inherent in Little League baseball and illuminates unspoken expectations held inside and outside the dugout. He investigates the unwelcome phenomenon of "Little League Rage", and he ponders why baseball lost favor among so many kids -- but now seems to be on the comeback trail once again. Do real sports have a role in a "virtual" age?
