USA Today says about Pinstripe Defection, "Facing the New York Yankees on the field is one thing, but dealing with the powerful franchise in the international arena and legal proceedings can be just as formidable - and eye-opening."
A season of baseball can be made or broken by the right players, so with billions of dollars a year flowing through the world of professional baseball, it's easy to see why scouts who discover the next star player might bend a few rules. It's easy to see, too, why a team might make promises it might not keep in order to sign a talented young player, recently defected from Cuba.
International baseball scouting can sometimes seem like the back room of a prohibition-era speakeasy -- dark, daunting and, often times, corrupt. This world was revealed to Jason Browning, a twenty-nine-year-old Arkansas attorney during his five year battle with one of the most powerful sports franchises in the world, the New York Yankees. Along the way, the attorney uncovered evidence of other under-the-table dealings.
