Format: Hardcover
Tale of an Oklahoma star college baseball player who agrees to sign a one year pro contract with his girlfriends' uncle who owns the Philadelphia Comets baseball team. He wins Rookie of the Year and knocks the cover off the ball.

The next year he signs with the New York Yankees and continues to play well until the Comets come to town and put a Ted Williams-like shift on the star and pitch to a previously unknown hole in his swing. Everybody is baffled.

He ends up being sent to the minor leagues and finding his swing is unfixable. He eventually encounters a one-arm-man who plays baseball and tells him to quit feeling sorry for himself. Goes to show you not to get too high on youself, or too low.
