We get it bluntly in a few places, for instance when our year-old African-American protagonist Cotter admires what his seeming friend Bill has to say about believing the Giants can still win it. At times the read felt very slow, but overall there was enough baseball in the book to keep it moving. In many respects, Pafko at the Wall is all scene.

Great well written multi dimensional story with crazy twists.
