This is an emotional and inspirational True Story read. Dick "Lefty" O'Neal tells us his story of just how he wanted to be a major league baseball player and where he never thought he would go where God took him. Instead of being accepted into the major league, he became part of history and was chosen as the only white player in the Negro Baseball League. He tells us of the how he deals with his faith, society and his family during a very controversial situation.
I would recommend this read to any ages and anyone that wants to be inspired. It is a quick read with so much emotions and faith in it. The story gives us a good lesson in following God's lead and how he has chosen a plan for you. Following God will always take you on a journey with many blessings, most you don't see until you are past the storm. Great book for giving your tween or teen to read and then discuss with them. This would be a great book for the whole family to enjoy and discuss.
