Gino Bartoli enjoyed a brief stint as a weak-hitting Major League reserve infielder, followed by a long career as a scout. Retired and living in Nevada City, California, he meets each Thursday with his good pal Paddy Hannigan to drink and talk. Lots of drink, lots of talk. Indeed, Bartoli is a charming braggadocio who never lets truth (or a box score) get in the way of a good yarn –– but one day he slips and mentions a teenage pitcher he discovered in Alaska in 1963. When Paddy hounds him for more information, a lifetime of lies––some harmless, some not––begin to squeeze in on Gino, and he decides to record the truth of his life. For Paddy's eyes only. But secrets as dark as Bartoli’s force Paddy into the unavoidable dilemma of protecting or exposing his good friend.
