When a drunk driver kills a pair of promising young athletes on a California country road, their best friend, Danny Grace, must overcome the horrific loss and find the strength to fulfill a pact made years earlier.
Written as a tribute to honor the memories of two childhood friends who died young, ONE FINE SEASON is inspirational baseball fiction combined with a strong message of Christian spirituality. It covers an 18-month period that takes the protagonist from St. Claire College in Northern California to the Arizona desert to Sutter’s Mill Park in Sacramento, home of baseball’s newest expansion team, where with help from “supernatural” sources he battles to fulfill his dreams. Along the way, an aging catcher, a highly educated and spiritual centerfielder, a wise old manager and a beautiful young woman also guide Danny. The four allies help change his wounded perspective on life and lead him in pursuit of emotional and spiritual healing as they delve into the meaning of death, human nature, the origins of the universe and the human yearning for a "fifth season" of perfect love and reunion with family and friends who have passed on.
