Hard Stuff


Revised 2017 edition of One Fine Season, 2009

A devastating tragedy. 
A shattered rookie pitcher. 
Do you believe in miracles?

Best friends Pete O’Brien and Danny Grace dream of playing professional baseball. They make a pact to help each other reach “The Show” and one day play for a championship. When tragedy strikes on a rural, wine country road, Danny’s world turns into a nightmare of suffocating grief and shattered faith.

Despite being drafted by an expansion team, Danny continues to reel from the crushing loss until an incredible opportunity thrusts the rookie pitcher into the Major League spotlight. During the season, an aging catcher, an eccentric center fielder, a wise old manager, and a beautiful woman emerge to help him heal emotionally and spiritually. Determined to fulfill the vow to his dead friend, Danny’s poignant journey climaxes when he comes face-to-face with the universe’s ultimate plan for humankind.
