William Hazelgrove's fifth novel hit the Amazon bestseller list and has been pushed along by the designation of a Junior Library Guild Selection and stellar reviews.

Ricky has a dream that he refuses to give up on."

Gigantic Pictures will have a script ready by late summer and hopes to have major talent lined up then. The role of the old pitcher brings several people to mind but taking out Clint Eastwood it certainly brings one person to mind. The man who started it all with Field of Dreams.
