Dugout Rivals

Available in paperback and E-book.

The Story

Jake is pumped about the upcoming season. He’s a pretty good shortstop, but there’s a new kid Adam who can do it all — pitch, hit, and field. Adam’s talents start to dominate every game and Jake resents all the attention he’s getting. Everything changes, however, when Jake learns something about Adam and something about himself.

The History

Many great players overshadowed their teammates, but even the best players couldn’t win by themselves. Babe Ruth needed Lou Gehrig and Michael Jordan needed Scottie Pippen. Learn the stories of those dynamic duos.
