Overview

There was nothing to suggest that this baseball season would be any different than the last 20 seasons Harry Edelson had covered, even though Oklahoma City now had a Major League franchise to call its own. He covered the move of the team from Kansas City that winter and observed the new owner – a Russian billionaire – signing the best players he could, including the reigning National League MVP, Bill Revere.

Ancient rivals, observing the events from afar, note the new owner wants to upset the balance of power in the American League. But as the season progresses – even as early as Opening Day – Harry observes odd things happening in the Royals' clubhouse. It comes to a head at the All-Star break, when Revere severely injures himself. He is carried off the field, and everyone thinks his season is over.

Not so: Revere recovers, but his form has changed. He slumps and eventually breaks out of it, yet the story written that night changes both his and Harry's lives: Harry notices something different with Revere in the clubhouse and dutifully reports his findings. Soon, Harry's running for his life – but that does not quench his desire for wanting to know exactly what's going on in that clubhouse.

It all leads to a road trip like no other, which has Harry perfectly placed to write an expose that's hard for any baseball fan to ignore.
