WATTYS 2018 SHORTLISTED! During World War I, a black baseball player gets a second chance to play ball on an all-white steel mill baseball team, an action that shocks and divides an entire town.
Targeted by opponents, his own team, and mysterious vigilantes, Henry Louis finds himself facing levels of anger and racism that threaten both his baseball career and his life.
When Henry meets Sarah, a free-spirited girl with the dream of becoming a writer, things get even more complicated as they fall in love.
Sarah ignites Henry's heart to keep fighting for his right play the game he loves. But by refusing to back down, Henry will pay the greatest price.
And in his suffering, Henry Louis will unite a town torn apart by prejudice and war ... not because of the color of his skin but because of the color of his dreams.
