Nine-year-old William Dobbs has only one thing to remember his biological father by: a picture of him wearing a New York Yankees hat. When Wilĺs adoptive parents inform him that his father did not die in a car accident eight years earlier as he had always believed, he resolves to make contact the only possible way he can think of, by becoming a New York Yankee. He succeeds, but in his rookie season, a wayward fastball tragically diverts his quest, and nearly ends his life. Will awakens from a coma eight weeks later, better than before, with inexplicable, almost superhuman abilities that eventually throw his search, entire life, and the game of baseball itself into turmoil. This is the story of a son's search for his father, the sanctity of America's pastime, baseball, and one mańs struggle to undo the damage done to him, and that which he has done to others.
