The woman he left behind and the son he never knew are
tougher opponents than any heâ€™s met on the field.
Pitcher Johnny â€śThe Monkâ€ť Scottsdale has won awards, been
named an All-star and has a perfect game to his credit.
Known for his legendary control both on and off the field,
his pristine public image makes him the ideal person to work
with youth players in a preseason minicamp. Except the camp
is run by the one woman he canâ€™t forgetâ€¦the woman who made
him a â€śmonk.â€ť
Alice Harrisonâ€™s three strikes include an unexpected
pregnancy, a marriage of convenience and young widowhood.
She once traded her dreams so Johnny could have a chance at
making it to the Majors. Johnny comes back into her life
just as sheâ€™s ready to resign as foundation director and
pursue her own dreams of finally earning her teaching
credential. Her plans may go on hold, though, depending on
the reaction when she confesses she may have kept a major
league secret from Johnny and her son.
With the minutes ticking by until Johnny will leave for
spring training, theyâ€™ll need to let go of the past and work
together in order to win the game of love.
