Fari Madrigal throws 95, has an off-the-table curve, and pinpoint control. And by the way, she is a woman, a mystical 22-year-old from the Dominican Republic. Fari signs with the Twins right before opening day and becomes a sensation before throwing her first pitch. But Fari is painfully shy, and the media crush and a crazed public force her into hiding and longing for home.
Opening Day comes, and the world waits for Fastball Fari to take the mound. Will her magical baseball powers elevate her to immortality, or will her inner demons and the relentless onslaught of the material world swallow her up before her dream is realized?
Fastball Fari is a triple-crown winner: It is a thought-provoking and charming blend of baseball and romance, with a large dose of social commentary mixed in.
