But an injury relegates him to the minors, and he dreams of one last shot at the big leagues while on a barnstorming trip to Cuba.
There, while Taylor faces off against the tough Havana teams, he meets a deaf Cuban boy with a spectacular pitching arm. In young Luis, Taylor sees his chance for redemptionand a way to win them both Giants uniforms. But baseballs changing politics and growing unrest in Cuba threaten his plans and force him to confront the choices that have brought him to this crossroad in his life.
