In the summer of 2012, fifteen- year-old David Danly visits his estranged grandfather, Jim in Cooperstown, New York. The little town has been Jim’s refuge for sixteen years following the devastating deaths of his wife and only son. Through the reunion of grandfather and grandson, David discovers a unique ability to experience time beyond the barriers of human reason that takes him back into the lives of baseball’s immortals, and to an answer his grandfather has been searching for most of his life. The Flannel Past is a story of redemption, and how a relationship forms between a boy who never knew his father, and his grandfather who knows he’s running out of time. Have you ever wondered if there really was a baseball God? The Flannel Past will leave you wondering no more.
