Season of Pepsi Meyers

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.
The year is 2040 and it's been thirteen years since the New York Yankees played post-season baseball. With the number one pick in the draft, they choose a remarkably gifted ballplayer from the Binghamton, New York area, named Pepsi Meyers. Although just eighteen years old, Pepsi earns a place on the Major League roster and revitalizes the Yankees with his spectacular play.

Pepsi also happens to be Jewish. As the season progresses, the city is energized by the newfound success of its beloved team. At the same time, Pepsi and his family discover a world they never knew existed, as they are exposed for the first time, to Torah and the way of life it endorses.

Pepsi's struggle with the tug-of-war between the spiritual and the mundane and how it affects him, his teammates and the City of New York is both an entertaining baseball tale, and a study into the priorities and meaningful choices we all have to make in our lives.

Extended Descrition:
For the first time, an observant Jew has the game to be a member of a professional baseball team, and not just any baseball team. Pepsi Meyers—an 18 year old phenom with unprecedented talent—is drafted number one in the nation, by the New York Yankees.

But a life of Torah is the furthest thing from Pepsi's mind at the start of the season. Hailing from Binghamton, N.Y., he and his parents arrive in New York woefully unfamiliar with the traditions and tenets of Judaism.

Providentially, they rent a house in Riverdale next door to a family with young children, whose father just happens to be the Rabbi of the local Torah Center. Pepsi's parents become enthralled with Torah and are drawn towards it. Pepsi's journey proves to be more complicated.
