I enjoyed parts of this book and was bothered by other parts of it. While reading it, I was trying to figure out if it was based on actual players/happenings because many of the players mentioned were names I recognized.

Would you enjoy a novel that imagines what would happen to a MLB rookie pitcher who throws a fatal bean ball at the behest of his manager? If so, A PITCH FOR JUSTICE an e-book examines the national debate that arises over the inherent risks of baseball and the unwritten code of the game versus society’s interest in the rule of law. You be the juror in this criminal investigation and prosecution for homicide. Please also read the review by Tampa Tribune sports writer Robert D’Angelo.
