Faith, Hope, and Baseball
Written by Jim Meisner Jr.
Jason Yoder’s Amish life is in turmoil. His girlfriend Faith is ready for them to join the church, marry, and begin their life together.
But Jason is a 17-years-old baseball phenomenon, just weeks away from leading his team to the Iowa state championship. At home, his widowed mother struggles to save the family farm from foreclosure.
When Chicago Cubs manager Skip Anderson discovers Jason playing, he knows the young man can help turn the team around and win the World Series.
An offer from the Cubs promises the money Jason needs to save the farm and provide the family financial security. But he knows if he leaves, the temptations of the outside world could be too great and he may never return to the life he loves—the only life he knows.
