Publisher's Summary

Coming of age in America by way of the baseball diamond, left-hander Henry Wiggen grows to manhood in a right-handed world. From his small-town beginnings to the top of the game, Henry finds out how hard it is to please his coach, his girl, the sports page and himself - all at once. The first installation of a series which includes Bang the Drum Slowly, The Southpaw is a comic and poignant look at Henry Wiggen's first season in the majors. This full-cast production features Edward Asner, Kate Asner, Henry Harris, Ron West, Amy Pietz, Earl Brown, Armando Ortega, Rugg Williams, Eric Winzenried, Evan Gore, and Tom Virtue.

A great set up for "Bang the drum slowly".

I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it even more so after I read "Bang the drum slowly". The two stories are not a continuing storyline but contain the same style and characters.

An enjoyable read.
