What would you do if you heard the voice of your dead mother whispering in your ear?

For Royce Thorne, baseball is a release. The ghost of his mother, the death of his teammate, the abuse of his father, and the impending outcome of an alleged cheating scandal bring him to a critical juncture in his young life.

If not for a mentor noticing a talent in him that Royce himself does not see, as well as the love of that mentor’s young daughter, Royce may not care to survive. Sitting Dead Red is a coming of age tale that is more than a baseball story. It’s a story of a redemptive life.

Royce must find the power of forgiveness. Not in others, but in himself.
