Roger Kahn’s Writing Rises Above Baseball and Touches the Heart

As great a pitcher as Orel Hershiser is, Roger Kahn transcends that plane in his writing. The evolution of the Dodgers’ pedigree, intertwined with his, was moving, and, unbeknown to the reader, tragically summarized by his own admission.

It is unfortunate in this day, that society has outgrown the innocence of baseball and capitulated to the pitfalls of a screwball civilization. Roger Kahn’s piece truly mirrors the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.
