CLOVIS, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2015
Heritage Builders Publishing has announced that it will publish “Grandpa Pitched for the Cubs,” the first novel from best-selling author and Liberty University founder, Dr. Elmer Towns. The sports fiction novel will be available everywhere on May 15, 2015.
“Grandpa Pitched for the Cubs” tells the story of Remle Noel, a young high school pitcher who dreamed of pitching baseball professionally. He developed a unique talent—a killer knuckleball—that made him the eventual darling of Wrigley Field fanatics.
But Remie’s dreams were nearly derailed when he accidentally killed a man who was attacking a woman in a darkened Chicago alley. He stopped the rape, but his index finger was shot off during the struggle. Remie managed to keep the murder a secret after an automobile accident driving away from the crime scene gave him a plausible explanation about why his index finger was missing.
While Remie struggles with his secret, a police officer struggles with his obsession to find the man with a missing index finger. Will the Cubs finally make the World Series? Will Remie pitch in the World Series? What happens when the cop and Remie finally meet? And what secrets remain to be discovered that could change everything?
