National Pastime is not just another story about baseball but a close look into the life of a rising star who is adversely affected by the events of a changing world. Set in a time when the entire country is mired in economic and political strife, baseball is on the verge of bankruptcy and the Chicago White Sox are on the brink of extinction.
Enter the young phenom, Darby McFerrin. The result is instant stardom and a renewed interest in America's national pastime and, for the moment, rescue of the Sox and the game of baseball on a national scale.
Darby William McFerrin is a fictional character who is injected into the world of real baseball of the early 1970s. The teams, owners, managers, and players, all real, are interactively recreated around our hero with historical accuracy.
