The spring Habitby David Hanson
Abner Doubleday invented baseball. Jackie Robinson integrated it. Now Sister Mary Bernadette is out to redefine what it means to throw like a girl. The big league Washington Memorials grudgingly welcome a new prospect to 1994 Spring Training, a nun with a nasty knuckleball. She's on a mission to make the club and use her contract to save her beleaguered hometown Church. She enters this world of men armed only with a tattered glove and a dream she thought was gone forever.
Sister Mary is chaste and virtuous -- a nun, but also an athlete who cannot be contained by her habit. She bonds with another outsider in this all male world, the team's beat reporter, Amy Springer, a temptress laced with vice but with secret dreams of virtue. Both are strangers in a strange world where they are not wanted and not welcomed.
Find out what happens when a team of pro baseball's best is forced to locker with a woman, who happens to be a nun. Nuns shouldn't be in locker rooms. Women shouldn't be in men's locker rooms. And young nuns shouldn't be on the rubber for game seven of a World Series. Maybe three wrongs do make a right!
