Summary Excerpt Comments

It's 1961. Eighteen-year-old Corey Coleman reports to spring training in Florida as a New York Yankee minor-league ballplayer. Naïve and insecure, he comes under the charismatic spell of womanizing, hard-drinking, legendary pitcher, Boomer "Night Rider" Baylis, who teaches the raw rookie invaluable life lessons. With his infamous guru guiding him, Corey experiences profound Zen insights: rescuing a trapped cat, dog racing, and binge drinking do not mix. Losing his virginity to an older woman is a blessing in disguise. Romancing a cunning femme fatale is a disaster waiting to happen. Most important, professional baseball is not a game, it's a business, and this sad truth initiates Corey's rite of passage to manhood. Let's take a trip to the past with Corey and the other Boys of Summer, as they comically romp their way through a minor league season, while Chasing the Yankee Dream toward "The Show."
