    Tackett s a dull writer in places, but this is overall an okay book that does a good job of telling a story about the best ideals of what athletics can do for individuals and communities, and does some exploration of what makes communities thrive It also focuses on the particular charms of baseball, as both a game and a perspective on life, and that s something I always find enjoyable But the book is nevertheless flawed it runs long and tends maudlin in places, and in many ways it sa ce Tackett s a dull writer in places, but this is overall an okay book that does a good job of telling a story about the best ideals of what athletics can do for individuals and communities, and does some exploration of ...
