you believe in fate, the stars, a Supreme Being, or Mr. Coincidence, you can
always count on one thing, life will throw you a wicked curveball or two. Billy
Bryan has seen his share. A former minor-league catcher for the Washington
Senators, Bryan is now a retired high school teacher, widowed with a grown
daughter, and “coming to the end of many things.” Then a long-forgotten
scrapbook stirs memories of a distant past, and beckons him on a reluctant
journey to relive his own extraordinary role in history.
Bryan is playing winter ball in Cuba, immersing himself in the decadent
nightlife of Havana, and dreaming of someday “making it” to the majors. But his
future on the diamond is as uncertain as Cuba itself, a country where rumblings
of revolution hang in the air like a high fly ball to left. Then one fateful
night Bryan witnesses a young student radical named Fidel hurl pitch after
amazing pitch. So begins Billy’s tug-of-war with destiny, to score a victory
for the game he worships, win the heart of the woman he loves, or make his mark
in a world racing toward revolution. Download and start listening now!
