Item Description

The spring of '53 started out like any other for sports columnist Jack Hall, as he and the rest of his small southern town, Whitney, eagerly awaited the magical first pitch that would open the Bobcat's season. But when ticket sales wane with the new distractions of air conditioning and I Love Lucy, the Bobcats face an early end not only to the season but to their careers as well. The team needs a white knight to save them and ironically, that white knight seems to be a 17 year old "colored kid," Percy Jackson, who's got a .364 batting average and has never seen a grounder he couldn't chase down.

Not everyone--not even most people--though can wrap their heads around an integrated baseball field, even if they have seen them on TV. This is Whitney. Things don't change and they don't need to change. Do they?

Hearts, minds, faith and tradition will be tested as will friendships and marriages when this sleepy southern town comes to grips with itself amid the early years of the Civil Rights Movement.
