Bottom-of-the-ninth dreams are the stuff that young boys are made of. But boys grow. Destiny arrives on the doorstep –or, more likely, fails to– and all the while mothers look on, impotent witnesses to the great unknown. Such is the turf of The Pitcher’s Mom, a novel about big dreams, cup shopping, bleacher barbs, sore arms, mothers and sons, wrestling destiny, and the sacrifices we make for love. Finally, a baseball book that captures the game—from Little League to the pros— from the mom's point of view.
"Heather Davis has a much better insight into the whole baseball process than almost any of the parents I've known over the last 50+ years. If you're a mom with a kid in the game, and you want to look at the big picture, "The Pitcher's Mom" is the story you should be reading."
