The Pitch is a baseball novel told in the genre of baseball fiction; some would say "science fiction" with a twist. It is fantasy, pure and simple fantasy.
From the moment star voyager Luther Woundup launches the orange baseball over the wall of Riders Field,
Sacramento baseball fans are introduced to the most intriguing mascot the game has ever seen. Luther’s ingenious,
magical displays are intended to win him a spot on the Riders' team.
But like a modern day Trojan Horse, it serves as a ruse to collect human brain waves with an innocent-looking device invented by his father, the reigning scientist on the planet, Spalding. The mission: convert the contents into cortesium, which is needed to save the people of Spalding. At least, that’s what Luther is told. Eventually, he learns the true purpose of his mission, pitting father against son in The Pitch.
In the novel, RUSH LIMBAUGH temporarily relocates his EIB Studio to his adopted hometown of Sacramento to report on the federal kidnapping case of a U.S. Supreme Court Justice by the leader of a group called The Limbaughsters. Soon enough, Limbaugh is confronted by a "star visitor" (not Luther), who has nefarious plans for El Rushbo. In time, Limbaugh overcomes the fact that he meets ET, and his association with the court case reveals new purpose for his career while dovetailing with Woundup’s stunning conclusion at home plate.
It might best be described as
The Natural layered over Slaughterhouse Five. It's "Out-of-This World."
