About the Edition

Faced with the collapse of his son"s Little league program--consisting mostly of Latino kids in the largely Asian suburb of Monterey Park, California--Jesse Katz finds himself thrust into the role of baseball commissioner for La Loma Park, where he soothes egos, brokers disputes, applies Popsicles to bruises and chases down delinquent coaches and missing equipment, all the while learning nothing less than what it takes to be a father, a son, a husband, a coach, and ultimately, a man.
