This is a book about heroism - of sorts. Roy Hobbs has an immense natural gift for playing baseball.
He could become one of the great ones of the game, a player unmatched in his time - a hero.
But his first hard-won big chance ends violently, at the hands of a crazy girl, and then it is years before he gets another shot.
At last, in a few short seasons, or never, he must achieve the towering reputation that he feels is his right.
