"Drawing on his many years working in professional baseball, Kastel’s story is minor league in setting only. It’s a major league yarn that puts the reader deep inside the inner workings of small town, professional baseball. With the outcome uncertain until the very end, The Manager’s Daughter offers more twists and turns than a Ruben Rivera run around the bases."
