Say Hey Little Prince (Paperback)
Ships in 2-10 Days
Like its eponymous cousin, Say Hey Little Prince transpires over eight eventual days, not in the Sahara Desert, but during the opening week of a modern professional baseball season. This is the unforgettable story of a Phenom, who pitches the most perfect game, imparts wisdom, and departs without saying goodbye. Mrs. S. meets the Little Prince when he is a middle schooler. The widowed owner of a professional baseball team, Mrs. S. adopts the Little Prince, whose parents are no longer living. Her "Little Prince" develops unusual gifts for baseball as well as literary and historical sensibility. As a result of his deep-seated loneliness and pain, the Little Prince also develops concerning and volatile qualities. He learns to cope, but barely, and with no assurance for how long he can last. Mrs. S. convinces her manager, Jim Murry, to start the Little Prince for the season opener. The Little Prince, it turns out, is possessed of unprecedented talent, and, more so, unprecedented sophistication and savvy. His first game is a miracle, while a repeat performance is beyond him. "It wasn't that his words cut through darkness; darkness lit his words." So reflects Mrs. S. when all is said and done.
