KIRKUS REVIEW

A straight baseball yarn by a veteran takes a twenty-six year old ""utility"" outfield several good jumps along the way to a combeack in the majors. Downhearted because of his age and record as a ""fill-in"", Handy Andy Pearson begins to feel the old get- up-and-go again with a new offer from the Blue Sox whose shortstop is getting old- but there is a young rival Slick Hammill to contend with before perseverance triumphs.
