Summary
Baseball, Blue Jeans, Struggling Moms, and Imaginary Friends is a story of the underdog struggles of Peter Marshall and his mom, Vicki. The story involves inspirational healing, unusual relationships between Peter and his imaginary friends," and hilarious interactions on and off the ball field. Young Peter Marshall would sit for hours in a majestic oak tree outside right field and dream of getting hits and running bases as the hero. He faced insurmountable hurdles, though. He was passed over by the coaches, unwelcomed by teammates, the butt of opponent jokes, target of a powerful villain, and no one to help. His mom couldn't help him as she struggled with widowhood, providing for her children, and saving the family home while trying to get her foot on the professional ladder. It's Peter alone, except for imaginary friends. The setting is in Tallahassee, Florida, in the middle of the historical area where Hernando de Soto and his men camped over winter in 1539 and celebrated the first Christmas in what would become the United States. The area has a rich history of the Apalachee Indians, Spanish and French occupation, slavery, and the Civil War. The landscape is hilly, with many streams, lakes and majestic Live Oak trees with Spanish moss hanging nostalgically from each limb. Lots of birds and wild animals live in the surrounding woods. The Florida State Capitol is six blocks away, and the area is steeped in government history. The ball field sits close to the site of the mansion and stables of William Duval, who was appointed by President James Monroe to be the first Territorial Governor of Florida
