Originally published titled ROOKIE copyright 1991 by Jerry B Jenkins. Miriam Woodell realizes that the hometown hero she married, though charming and athletic, is gripped by a dangerous darkness. She has no choice but to save herself and Elgin, her young son--leaving rural Mississippi for the big, cold city of Chicago. Strong, resolute, and determined, Miriam struggles to survive. Meanwhile, Elgin pursues a seemingly impossible dream. Fueled by the lessons his father taught him, he plays ball on the concrete streets and even sets up a batting cage in the basement, using a decrepit, malfunctioning pitching machine to teach himself to hit. By spring, Elgin, is ready to find a team. By the end of summer, everyone will be talking about the eleven-year-old boy who plays baseball like a high school star--a prodigy on his way to greatness, despite staggering odds. Yet Elgin must still come to terms with his father, whose life has reached a dead end. With a new man entering Miriam's life and scouts wooing Elgin, mother and son must learn painful lessons about themselves, about each other, and about the people they are forced to trust.
