Great book. Was curious to give it a try as I had not read a non-western book by Zane Grey. Thoroughly enjoyed it. If you like baseball as I do you will like this book. Great insight into how the game of baseball used to be. This digital edition was not properly justified for my Kindle which was a little irritating but I got used to it. (Many of the words at the end of a line had some of their letters on one line and the rest on the next line.) I did not rate the book any lower because of this, however, as it has nothing to do with the original version of the book.

On top of his vast collection of western dramas, Zane Grey also penned a number of boys' stories, especially those involving team sports. Even at this age, I am often taken back to some of those great stories when I see the kinds of things that today's children are often obligated to read. This is a story of a young man named Chase Alloway, a factory worker in the very early twentieth century who dedicated himself to taking care of his widowed mother, but also had a driving need to pursue his great love, baseball! At a critical point in his life, he makes a decision to strike out on his own to try to play professional ball, and does find a place on a minor league tem in Ohio. The trials and tribulations he endures to realize his dream are daunting, but it is also a tale of touching relationships, even romance, that really is "all about character." I was so pleased to finally find a book from my youth that my dear mother had thrown out when I went to college and then the military!

Zane Grey is known for his westerns, and they are great, but his baseball stories are maybe even better. Baseball is the American small town game. It is linked forever in the tradition of family, community, and the hard knocks of life that give young men a chance at being real men. Zane Grey loved the game. He understood it. He also understood the old American midwest, and it is fun to relive it. If you love baseball, Ohio, young men trying to make good, you will love this novel.

This story is just plain fun. Everything turns out great. Sure, it is often unrealistic, but who cares. Baseball is fun, the poor kid who leaves home and does well is fun, reliving our childhood dreams is fun, so let's enjoy this slightly fantasy-filled story.

While an early story by Zane Grey, it is not the quality of his later work. But local professional baseball hardly exists today and this story provides a window into how baseball was played back when it was probably the only professional team sport. People had few entertainment options for their leisure time except baseball. The relationships of owners, coaches, players, and fans that Zane Grey knew well are far different than today in a game that has changed in interesting ways though not fundamentally. It was fun to read for someone that enjoys sports history.

This was a fun read about the early days of big league baseball before commercialism took over. However as a download for Kindle it was difficult to read. It came in a form that had to be converted and in the process the formatting was very poor-especially words split in the middle.

This is a great baseball story from the old days of baseball, early part of the 20th century. It follows the life of a fictional industrial league baseball player, Chase Alloway and documents his development into a star player in semi-pro ball. If you love baseball, this is your book. Great prose, written by a big time baseball fan from the period. Fast moving, great story, something in it for everyone, even romance!
