Chapel receives news from a friend in the media that he is about to be traded. Just the night before, his girlfriend Carol did not show up at his hotel room, and Chapel reaches the conclusion that it is time to move on and finally make the transition from boyhood to manhood. Over half the book tells the story of that final game, with flashbacks from the pitching mound and dugout to incidents throughout Chapel’s life. Chapel is determined that his last game will also be his greatest, even though, with all the young new players on the Yankees, they are a far superior team.
As he strikes out his opponents one after the other, he soon becomes aware of the fact that he has held the Yankees at bay thus far, not allowing one hit from the more talented Yankees team. As the game proceeds, Chapel feels the sharp pain in his arm that comes with age. Nevertheless, he refuses to give up the pitching mound, and chooses instead to divert his attention by delving deeper into his life and his relationship. At the end of the game, he has pitched a perfect game and retires from baseball with a new dignity. This short book was discovered after Shaara’s death, and publishing was arranged by his son, author Jeffrey Shaara. The book was made into a movie by Sam Raimi.

The success of the NES and SNES models has clearly got the company’s attention, as it’s been putting effort into distributing decent stock for the latest system and is preparing to bring the NES back. Nintendo has looked at the sales and online demand and realised that it’s sitting on easy money. So, we reckon there are good odds that the Nintendo 64 will happen. However, there’s been a bit of buzz about a supposedly new list of game manuals for N64 games, and some are excitedly speculating that the line-up of 19 games could be an inadvertent leak of the prospective N64 Mini’s library. Former Nintendo Life writer and N64 expert actually tweeted about the list back in January this year. Lost the instruction manuals to your Nintendo-published N64 games?
