If such extravagant effects can stem from such a tiny cause, what might be the consequences of first love on a small Missouri town?Chaos Theory as Applied to Love, Baseball, and the Rest of the Universe examines lifes most elemental forces: love, death, religion, and, of course, baseball.Raised in a family of eccentric losers, George Seibenmanns only ambition is to pitch for his high schools baseball team. Ruth Hannon, on the other hand, is a young woman possessed of neverending hope, grounded faith, and a deadly fastball. When she breaks the gender barrier and becomes the teams starting pitcher, George senses a change in the wind – not only for the team but for himself as well.Ruths older brother coaches the team from a wheelchair. Though paralyzed from the waist down, he appears to have the determination and skill to lead the team all the way to State. The teams remarkable string of victories causes a sensation in this most hopeless of hopeless towns – until a sudden and incomprehensible tragedy strikes. But, as defeat looms, George experiences a revelation of amazing grace – one impossibly suspended moment in time that changes the course of several lives.
