A Summary On Shoeless Joe Written By W. P. Kinsella

544 words - 3 pages

Ray Kinsella, a baseball fanatic, wandered to New Hampshire to find the novelist, J.D. Salinger, the man the mysterious voice had instructed him to find. Salinger, a retired novelist, did not trust Kinsella, a strange farmer from Iowa who was going to take him to a Red Sox game. Kinsella had got orders from the mysterious voice to take Salinger to the game where they would get their next instructions. Throughout their travels, Salinger and Kinsella try to solve the riddles of the mysterious voice and go to Kinsella's baseball field. But, in his head he heard; "If you build it, he will come" and Ray ...view middle of the document...

So, Ray wanted to see his hero and favorite team back in action, so once he heard that voice again he got all the supplies and cut all the corn down and made it into a nice beautiful baseball field just like the one he admired played on. Once it took about 6-7 months to build the baseball field, to grow back the grass for the outfield and to pad the infield with dirt and the mound and also make bleachers for Ray's family to watch, he saw these "ghosts" of Black Sox's started appearing on his field and they were playing catch and hanging out and talking. He grabbed a glove from his house and went onto the field and played catch with his hero and that was the greatest memory Ray could have ever experience that was his only wish, to play a game of catch with the one he admired. A few hours later, another team starts arriving, in the old 1920's uniform and they start practicing as if a game is going to begin and Ray brings out his wife and son to show them that he was not lying and they sat down on the bleachers and watched the Black sox's win. But it was time to go now and Ray and his family wave good-bye to Joe Jackon and the rest of the Black sox's team. It just shows that Ray would of done anything to play a game of catch and see his hero in action and even though they loss a lot of money cutting down the corn and tons of money to spend on the field, it was well worth it.
