doping scandal, the egos, the excessive money. It all just collapsed.
But, of course, baseball itself would not die. How could it? And after a
season or two of discontent, up sprang the Planetary Extreme Baseball
Alliance, or PEBA for short.
Today Casey Neal and his buddy Don-o are fresh-faced college
graduates unencumbered by commitments like summer jobs or girl friends.
On a lark they tour every big-league park in the PEBA, and find
themselves caught up in a web of intrigue and scandal that threatens
once again the very heart of professional baseball itself. Against all
that Casey, well, he's trying to find out who he's going to be in this
world. And Don-o?
Well, Don-o is something different all together now, isn't he?
