When Civil War buff and burned-out lawyer David Thompson fights to save a kids' baseball league, he's launched on a thrill ride that threatens his family, his team, and his life. Captivating characters lead double lives and keep secrets in this award-winning page-turner based on a true storyA cast of shady adults and the high school baseball coaches hate him for trying to save it. They'll do anything to wreck the league so that their elite travel teams can take over its beautiful ball field. If David doesn't fold, they'll make his life miserable and ban his son from the high school team.
The harder David battles to save the league, the worse things get. He's in way over his head and he's stuck in a family catch-22. If he surrenders, he might lose his son's love along with his own self-respect to say nothing of losing baseball for the sandlot kids in town. Yet if he doesn't back down, he might lose his marriage.
David Thompson is being pushed to his breaking point and only one thing is certain: If he snaps, he's not planning on taking prisoners
