No matter how much Eddie practices, he just can't play baseball like his big brother, Harold. In fact, there's only one part of the game Eddie's any good at, and it has nothing to do with double plays or home runs--Eddie's great at talking, and gives a fantastic game wrap-up.

James Warhola's richly-detailed artwork, full of wit and wonderful period details, brings the Koch brothers to life.
