Samenvatting

In the summer of 1948, 12-year old Edgar Howard is visited by the most amazing man he would ever know—his grandfather. During their short time together, Edgar is taught how to throw a baseball, how to take good care of his things (especially his baseball cards) and most importantly, how to dream. But the cruel hand of fate intervenes, leaving Edgar's delicate world of hope—and his one and only dream—shattered.
Some sixty years later, hapless old Edgar finds himself at the tail end of a most common life. While sitting on his porch, listening to the baseball game on his radio, an unexplainable phenomenon appears. Rummaging through his helpless mind, the unseen intruder extracts memories of his life and, one by one, Edgar is forced to relive his every failure—harsh reminders of a life that never was. Even the tragic events of that summer of his youth, long since buried, are brought to the surface.
What follows is the extraordinary journey of an ordinary young boy, given a brief glimpse into another world where, according to his beloved grandfather, dreams actually exist.
As an old man, long past believing in such foolish childhood nonsense, Edgar's otherwise mundane days are spent battling the invisible intruder. Ultimately, Edgar finds himself at a crossroads—not where madness and sanity meet, or even life and death, but two things far more unimaginable.
Love of the Game is a magical tale of childhood and family, of delicate dreams and the astonishing people who inspire and encourage them. It is filled with tragedy, undying faith and the great American pastime.
