Dobrow chases those who chase the dream
Dobrow takes us on an insightful journey through the minors, providing access most of us will never have to future big leaguers. He humanizes their struggles, rescuing them from the roster of the self-absorbed that we typically see from our vantage point in the stands or on TV. It's not an original concept, to be sure. I've got books on my shelf dating back a couple of decades, from Bill Ballew's Brave Dreams to Paul Hemphill's Heart of the Game. We even had a documentary this past fall, Time in the Minors, which followed a pair of aspiring players.
