Section II, Part I, introduces and defines the key source of conflict chronicled by Chick in this journal of his life, the conflict between (as he himself describes) being "a mama's boy" or "a daddy's boy." This conflict is grounded in his parents' very different definitions of success as they strive in very different ways to get Chick to be the best man he can be. For Chick's father, success is defined by success in baseball, but for his mother success means a good education and a worthwhile application of that education.
