Book Description With disarming intensity, humor, and great heart, Brian Shawver tells the story of Dennis Birch, a washed up thirty-four-year-old failed ball player turned minor league scout whose field of dreams has always been baseball. No longer a candidate for baseball greatness himself?if he ever was?Dennis accepts the challenge of smuggling a hot left-handed pitcher out of Cuba in the hope that promoting the greatness of another will somehow confer a small, manageable portion of it on himself. A novel of last-ditch hopes, destiny?s curve balls, and quiet redemption, The Cuban Prospect projects a vision at once humorous, harrowing, and affirming.
