Short Summary

I have always had a great memory. For some reason I have the ability to remember events from my childhood that others think are impossible. And when I say childhood, I mean infancy. I remember sitting in my crib staring at my parents staring at me. I remember lying on my back playing with my feet.


During the journey, readers can expect to be taken on a bumpy and humorous ride, beginning with Beller’s kick the can days, ping-ponging through his life-long dream of becoming a professional baseball player, and ending with his close relationship to his father.
