An account of Eddie Waitkus, the slick-fielding first baseman who played for the Cubs and Phillies in the 1940s and was the inspiration for Roy Hobbs in "The Natural". It chronicles Waitkus's remarkable comeback as well as the difficult years following his 11-year major league career.



Through interviews with Waitkus's family, fellow servicemen, former ballplayers, and childhood friends, and aided by fifteen photographs, Theodore chronicles Waitkus's remarkable comeback as well as the difficult years following his eleven-year major league career.
