Summary
This is the story of Herschel and his grandfather and their relationship that blossomed during Ty's retirement and after the death of Ty's two adult sons, who he never fully reconciled with. Young Herschel and his siblings were the brunt of horrible abuse by their bullying father and alcoholic mother, and grandfather Ty was the welcome comfort in their lives.
Critique
The book offers another side to the often vilified Ty Cobb, as we witness Cobb showering affection on the grandchildren and helping struggling ex-ballplayers who didn't have the great fortunes that he amassed.
