Blind Spot: 03/19/12
"Blind Spot" by Rick Wilber and Nick DiChario is a baseball story with a twist. Wilber and DiChario are self proclaimed baseball fans and that comes through in their story of an old baseball and the memories associated with it.
The story draws on some personal history too as Rick Wilber is the son of Del Wilber. Although I didn't know that going into the story as baseball history isn't one of my fortes, I still got a sense that this story might be semi-autobiographical.
Although the book is about baseball fandom, it's not saccharine nostalgia. It's a dark story, dealing with abuse and broken families.
