Overview

A fantastic tale of Heaven and Earth meeting on the baseball field, with thought-provoking lessons for all of us.

The quiet young baseball prospect named Bobby Ellis seemingly came from nowhere to try out for the New Jersey Greys. But it quickly became clear that he could help the Greys challenge their arch rivals, the New York Yankees, in the 2005 pennant race. As Bobby Ellis became a fan favorite, broke records and seemed to be poised for a Hall of Fame career, baseball fans everywhere embraced his spirit and sportsmanship as he taught the world a lesson, on and off the field. But some people wanted to expose Ellis' secret—who was really inside that body, where he was really from, and his mission on Earth—while others wanted to snuff out his success, no matter what the cost.

Set partly in Heaven but mostly on the baseball diamonds that have come to be dominated by dollars rather than sportsmanship, Diamond Of Greed evokes the tradition of baseball fantasies such as Field of Dreams, It Happens Every Spring and Damn Yankees. Diamond Of Greed mixes the ordinary with the extraordinary, the commonplace with the inexplicable, and offers an entertaining story with a tale that is, literally in this case, Heaven-sent.

    A good read for people who care about baseball

    This is a long book, but I was still sorry to see it end. The story is a fantasy, but I was really into the characters. I think this book would appeal to anybody who likes stories about angels, or anybody who likes baseball and is worried about how the game has become all about money.
