American Bases is about baseball, love and the Korean War, an average man's pursuit of glory-the true meaning of magnificence. When Jim Ranelli returns home the Korean War is just another failure in a life cluttered with second place finishes. He decides to coach an American Legion baseball team, beginning a quest to be the finest coach in Pennsylvania's Wyoming Valley. This is a story about a man who loves coaching so much, it almost destroys his marriage, the woman who stands by him, what it's like to put everything you have into something and fail. Most of us know the feeling, but how many of us learn that what matters most-is the process itself, the impact we have on those we touch along the way.
