A Drive into the Gap: Roberto Clemente Keeps On Giving 40 Years Later

I just finished reading A Drive into the Gap.

It’s a remarkable story about stories, that includes a mystery that revolves around the last baseball hero, Roberto Clemente, a boy’s Dad, the absolute wonder of the game of baseball and the disease that has stolen some of it away from all of us.

I can’t imagine how difficult writing the book was, I am just damn glad Kevin Guilfoile did.  One of the stories details what happens when Kevin discovers that Roberto Clemente’s bat that he hit the 3,000th hit with might not be in the Hall of Fame after all.  It’s been above his bed since he was a kid.

We just started reading it again. I think you should go grab a copy. Get your Dad one too, he deserves it.

Topics: A Drive Into The Gap, Bill Guilfoile, Kevin Guilfoile, Pittsburgh Pirates
