Abstract

Gildner's memoir captures the spirit of baseball in a culture that doesn't understand chatter, insists on protecting the baselines by covering them with carpet, and whose citizens are more likely to have grown up bouncing a soccer ball off their heads than playing catch. Amid the lack of equipment, reliable playing conditions, and regular practices, Coach Gildner is still able to track the progress of the Sparks-and of himself, the grandson of a Pole-both as a team and as individuals.
