"The Knuckleball From Hell" - A Story of Life, Love, the New York Mets...and Everything in Between.
If you like humorous, quirky and irreverent stories, you'll love "The Knuckleball From Hell." Or if you're a Mets fan, baseball fan, or sports fan, you'll also love it.
"The Knuckleball From Hell" tells the story of a fictional Mets team that is horrendous and been driven into the ground by its bankrupt owner, while the protagonist is a high school phenom who only wants to pitch for the Mets. Unfortunately, he blows out his arm and his career is seemingly over, until he has a chance encounter with a Professor on the lam from chicken-wing eating Department of Homeland Security Special Agents, enabling the kid to join the Mets with a new pitch ? the Knuckleball from Hell - and lead the Mets to World Series glory.
Along the way the story encounters a Rastafarian quantum physicist, Hare Krishnas, the superhero Donutman, surfer dudes, a Russian Cossack, a Kalahari bushman, two New York bus drivers who become the Mets general managers, a color-coordinated Transylvanian vampire, and much, much more.
