Here’s the set-up:
Have you ever watched a baseball game where tempers escalated and you feared that retaliation by one side could result in an incident with serious injury?What would happen if a player were critically injured in such a circumstance? What if the unthinkable occured and the player died? Is it just a tragic part of the game? Or could it actually be murder? Veteran prosecutor Jaime Brooks reluctantly agrees to investigate the matter and decide whether to pursue the matter criminally. What began as a feud between two teams ends in a shocking criminal case and ensuing trial when the pitcher is investigated for murder.Brooks must confront a possible criminal conspiracy among team members, an uncompromising widow bent on avenging her husband’s death, corruption in the grand jury, and a national debate over the inherent risks of baseball and the accountability of its players. Should the pitch and its result be handled by the baseball commissioner, or is it a crime to be prosecuted in the courts?A Pitch for Justice examines the unwritten rules of baseball on the twenty-year-old rookie who threw the pitch, the game itself, and our legal system. Did the pitcher compromise his moral compass for the team’s honor? What was in his heart when he threw the fatal pitch? You be the juror in the case that could change baseball forever.
