SOUTHPAW FLY HAWK

No screw balls or moral pepper plays embellish this straight across the plate baseball yarn. When Eddie Hadley left the Calumet Miners semi-professional team to begin the long, painful climb to the big leagues he was determined to make good, not only to support his widowed mother but to carry out his life's ambition. Setbacks in the form of a surprise change from the pitching mound to the outfield, exhausting slumps, and the usual rookie dilemmas, slow the progress but Eddie finally gets the nod from the New York Giants front office. Good play, lively diamond chatter.
