A look at the 1979 Crenshaw High School varsity baseball team offers a glimpse of the beginning of Darryl Strawberry's baseball career among the finest collection of high-school baseball talent in history.
author of "Black Hawk Down"
More than the sad saga of Darryl Strawberry, "The Ticket Out" examines and explodes an American myth: that athletic skill offers a magic shortcut to happiness and success. Mike Sokolove is a journalist who finds in sports a window to deeper, more important things. His affectionate but clear-eyed story reaffirms that character (not talent) is destiny, and that even the most amazingly gifted athlete remains a product of his community, his family, and most important, himself.
