A warehouse manager, five childhood friends, and a former superstar pitcher embark on a journey with their coaches and teammates to turn a failing minor league franchise into a playoff contender. They’ll dig deep inside themselves to bring their very best to the top. It’ll be difficult and a hard-headed young star in the making and meddlesome pizza mogul keeping a watchful eye on them won’t make things any easier.
Laughs will be shared, tears will be shed and life lessons will be learned along the way. It’ll be a memorable season both on and off the field as Bernie asks, “Dad, wanna be our manager?”
J.B. lives in Dunmore, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Elaine, and two children, Maria and Abby. He continues to enjoy baseball and hopes someday that the Atlanta Braves will win another World Series.
