A Drive into the Gap
A DRIVE INTO THE GAP
A Drive into the Gap, by Kevin Guilfoile, is a true story about fathers and sons, baseball and memory, and the improbable journey of a bat from one of the most iconic moments in the history of the Major League Baseball to the bedroom of a 12-year-old boy.
“An extraordinary, beautifully written story about baseball and memory. Simply amazing.”
– Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man: The Life and Death of Lou Gehrig and Opening Day: The Story of Jackie Robinson’s First Season.
“Kevin Guilfoile weaves laughter with tears, history with mystery, and the blessings of baseball with the curse of Alzheimer’s.”
– Steve Wulf, Senior Writer, ESPN The Magazine
“A suspenseful mystery involving one of baseball’s greatest heroes, Roberto Clemente, and the relationship between a devoted son and a remarkable father. A spectacular home run.”
– Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune
“My favorite baseball book used to be Jim Bouton’s Ball Four. Now it’s A Drive into the Gap by Kevin Guilfoile.”
