Reynolds’ debut novel, The Game: Baseball and America Grown’ Up Together, follows the Miller family as they chase the American dream from the green fields of Ireland to the heartland of America. Trace the paths baseball and America take as they grow and struggle in unison over time. As baseball becomes a part of the American fabric as the country becomes a world power, with baseball ahead of the curve on some of the issues of the times; capitalism (the good and the bad), civil rights, unions, personal liberties.
