About the book:
Every boy who picks up a glove dreams of playing in the big leagues. Only a few are actually good enough to make the grade. With a ninety-eight mile-per-hour fastball and a devastating slider, eighteen-year-old Jack Burke was a baseball phenom. Picked in the first round, his future as a superstar seemed destined. Nothing could stop the kid—except himself. His childhood dream of a baseball life would turn into a nightmare marked by injury, immaturity, and personal tragedy. After just a couple years of minor-league ball, he found himself on the outside of the diamond. He asked the question he never imagined, “What will my life be without baseball?” Paint the Black is about pitching—and living—on the edge where decisions have consequences. But it’s never too late to start over again.
