Description-
  • Michael Arroyo grows up in the shadows of hallowed Yankee Stadium, a boy forever on the outside looking in. His only chance to see his field of dreams? Pitch his Bronx all-star team to the district finals and a shot at the Little League World Series.

    But there is a problem. Michael is good–too good. Rival coaches and players can’t believe a boy could be this good and be only twelve years old. And Michael has no way to prove it–no mother, no father, and a birth certificate that is stuck home in his native Cuba. If the people from social services find out his secret, he will have an even worse problem: being separated from the only family he knows, his older brother Carlos. Baseball can be a game of heroes, of champions who refuse to lose. Or it can be a field of crushed dreams. For one boy, the game is about to turn serious.

  • AudioFile Magazine Michael Arroyo is growing up in the shadow of Yankee Stadium. He is the star pitcher of his Little League team, dreaming of pitching them to the Little League World Series. Everything is on track for his dream to come true; then he is benched until the birth certificate that didn't make it out of Cuba with the family can be produced to prove he is only 12 and eligible to play. Paolo Andino tells the story with an enthusiasm sure to draw in young baseball fans. He creates an excitement that has the listener rooting for Michael. His Hispanic accent is true to the characters as he brings each of them to life. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine
