Fairy tales can be described as stories involving fantastic forces, most originating in folklore, mythology, and legend..

In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson tells us about the National Pastime’s own version of a fairy tale.

It happened recently when the Pittsburgh Pirates called up a player for his Major League debut after he spent more than a decade playing in the minor leagues.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, the author of Growing Up With Clemente and the editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
