THE ROCKTHROWER #1 (of 6)
David Willis, a down and out baseball scout on his last leg, sees footage of a Palestinian/Israeli conflict when he is transfixed on a new potential pitching discovery — a Palestinian teen throwing rocks with a speed and accuracy that defies even the best pitchers on Major League Baseball teams. On a wild hunch, a wing and a prayer, Dave travels into unforeseen territory to make this kid a star. But will his own heritage of being Jewish and his dark past as a disgraced baseball player put this endeavor towards a path of failure before its even had a chance to succeed…?
