Description
All of Boston has been waiting for the arrival of Fred Lynn and Jim Rice to the 1975 Red Sox baseball club. The papers call them the Gold Dust Twins, the best pair of rookies ever to come along to one team in the same year. No one knows this better than twelve-year-old Richard Riley Moncrief, who is planning to be the next Fred Lynn. And Richard thinks he's found his Jim Rice when he meets Napoleon Charlie Ellis, the new kid from Dominica. Skin color doesn't matter to Richard, who's convinced that baseball overcomes everything. He's determined to teach the kid everything he knows about the game. Together they'll be the best players ever -- even better than the Gold Dust Twins. But Napoleon has his own ideas. And the longer Richard sticks by his new friend, the harder it becomes for him to ignore the ugly realities of life in his city, community, and school -- and worst of all, in The Game itself....
