Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Just ask the Romanos.

Dogged by tragedy and broken dreams, they’ve learned the hard way that not every mistake turns into a foul ball—and sometimes, it’s the words left unspoken that cut the deepest.

After fleeing 1970s San Francisco to escape the shadow of his abusive father, Frank struggles to balance his firefighting career with the demands of raising his talented but challenging son, Danny. Determined to transcend his tortured past, Frank bridges the growing chasm between them the only way he knows how: through baseball.

Danny’s meteoric rise on the diamond draws father and son together, but a shared passion for the game can only carry them so far. When life throws the Romanos a series of knee-buckling curveballs, not even the sport they love can strengthen the withering ties that bind.

As the thrilling seventh game of the 2014 World Series unfolds and chance offers them one last swing at redemption, father and son must confront their intermingled traumas to finally answer the question that torments them both: Is there life after baseball?

Author: Patrick Holcomb is a long-retired Little League right fielder whose passion for the game far outdistanced his unremarkable talent. After hanging up his cleats for good, he found his true calling, earned the title US Marine, and spent the next twenty years traipsing around the globe alongside some of the brashest and boldest women and men this country has to offer. Running is his passion and backpacking is his joy. And to this day he still hungrily admires each mountain with the same boyish question tumbling through his mind: Can I climb that?
