Inhaltsangabe: Novel for young adults by award winning author

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: This excerpt comes from near the beginning of the book when Vano, the protagonist (if this book can be said to have one) is trying out with the Oakland A's to see how many millions of dollars his signing bonus is to be.

The few observers who weren't in the home plate vicinity were stationed with their speed guns near the bullpen where Vano's warm-ups were popping the mitt of Jerome Neal, the Oakland A's bullpen coach, and former major league catcher. Vano was throwing easily, just getting loose, topping out in the mid eighties. He had popped a sweat, though, and was beginning to feel grooved. He said so to Neal.

"What does that mean?"

"I'm loose and locked on. Pretty soon I'll start seeing every pitch before I throw it."

Neal wondered if Vano Lucas was a nut case. He shrugged and went back into his crouch. He had no idea what Vano was talking about, but he was close to finding out. Vano's next fastball poured into his mitt at 99 per. Jerome Neal winced and flinched. While lobbing the ball back he said, "Jesus Christ, kid, nice pop."

"There wasn't no pop on that," was Vano's scornful reply. "That wasn't even close to pop."

Neal reacted first by smiling, then by patronizing: "Yeah, sure, kid. Right." He had read the stuff on Vano, just like everybody else, but he assumed the stories were media hype or readings from faulty equipment.

But on the next fast ball, Neal saw his life pass before him. Picked up on all the guns at 112 or 114, it was a rocket that blazed into his mitt before he could react. A murmur rippled the gathered scouts, while Neal stood up slowly. He whooshed his breath before he said, "Jesus Christ." Then he said to Vano. "Wait a minute, I'll be right back."

The Oakland veteran went directly to the dugout where he began by slipping a nut cup into position. Next, he put on the chest protector. He was strapping on the shin guards when Tony LaRussa, the A's field manager, approached. "Is he ready?" LaRussa asked.
