Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"What is it about Dem Bums? Perhaps no other sports team has inspired such love,bordering on obsession, in its fans. No other team has inspired such lasting feelings of loss and betrayal by its departure from a community. Prince should be well equipped to answer the question of why this is so. He grew up in Brooklyn a diehard Dodger fan, the son of two diehard Dodger fans." 02/01/1996

New York Times
"This can't be a book for everyone; its focus is too confined. It is more likely to appeal to those who remember Jackie Robinson dancing off first base or rounding the bases as among the most lyrical images in the history of baseball." - Avery Corman 07/26/1996
