      An interesting book about a pitcher who grew up a local hero to the folks in the town I live in Topeka, Torrez s home town Was not a particularly well written book, a lot of the book repeated itself But I walked away from it learning that Torrez was and still is a role model to people of the Mexican American community in Topeka.
