In A Short Season, Dave Bohner, the story's narrator and grandfather to Josiah, and Jake Gronsky , former Spikes player and St. Louis Cardinals professional baseball player, tell the powerful story of Josiah's fight for life that not only sparked a family's journey towards healing but inspired a generation of baseball players from one of the most historic organizations in Major League Baseball.
A Short Season is a story of hope; a story of acceptance; and a story of faith based on the idea that sometimes a person's only journey to peace is first trekked through pain. A Short Season is a family's journey through sorrow and joy, it is a baseball team's inspiration, and it is the story of one exceptional child's ray of hope that changed all of their lives forever.
