Description

Dash Parker dreamed of a World Series ring. Ownership cared about profits and attendance. A new high-priced free agent was brought in for the season. His job? Sell seats. But he was more interested in launching a Hollywood career than rocketing balls over the fence. Griffin Roberts only agreed to come to LA to find a Hollywood agent and figured he'd be starring in a blockbuster action drama by the time the World Series started in October. Ownership didn't care about Griffin's motivation. Television contracts and corporate sponsors were paramount to winning titles. Manager Dash Parker understood, but couldn't agree. Call him old fashioned, but Joseph Dashiell Parker believed that winning a title would translate to the financial benefits ownership desired. And you didn't win championships with high-priced, disengaged talent. By early June, the team built on one under achieving superstar was mired in the cellar. That's when Dash started dreaming. As the calendar turned and the All Star break loomed, the team began mysteriously punching victories into the win column. Nothing had changed on the roster. However, in the midnight hours of those early summer nights, Dash experienced vivid dreams of another team. Only this team didn't play in the shadows of the Boys in Blue. This "dream team" played their hearts out in pre-war America. These post-depression boys helped Dash focus on the task at hand, managing a team to the championship. As the end of the season approached, Dash had two championships to play for: one in the bigs, and one in the old time PCL. The trouble was, Dash wasn't entirely sure which one was the real team.show more
