Description
Preacher's boy Luke Bledsoe is a left-hander in a right-handed world. He's spent his whole life feeling like an outsider. Until by chance he steps on a baseball field and discovers he can pitch.And he's good. Better than good'he's a lefty with a fastball straight out of heaven. There's only one problem: his father. ?The left side has always been the side of Satan, contrary to God,? he tells Luke. ?And baseball itself is nothing but the Devil's playground.' Strong words for a boy who grew up trying to please his pa. But in stealing away to pitch, to feel the passion and camaraderie of the game, Luke discovers a whole new side to life. And to himself.John H. Ritter, a major-league new talent in juvenile fiction, hits a home run with this inspirational story that's sure to appeal to baseball fans, reluctant readers, and all left-handers who have ever longed to be like their right-handed peers.John H. Ritter lives in San Diego, CA.
