After winning three consecutive World Series championships, myriad problems befall the Buffalo Pioneers, starting with a dying owner, a crumbling stadium and a superstar the club can no longer afford. Tensions in the front-office and egos in the clubhouse spill over onto the field, depriving the Pioneers of the chemistry that brought them glory.

As the team is ripped apart by free-agency, drug controversies and personal rivalry, old-school manager Jack Vaughn does his best to keep the ship together only to be overcome by the economics of baseball and the immense problems of his own personal life. As Jack's relationship with general manager Trent Blair disintegrates beyond repair and he finds himself in the twilight of his own storied career, he is forced to come to the realization that "nothing lasts forever".

Is baseball doomed in Buffalo? Can the Pioneers ever hope to replicate the glory of their halcyon years?

End of a Dynasty shows the alienation that can occur in professional baseball between the players and its devoted fans, as greed and egoism threaten to ruin the majestic innocence the game provides for those who love it.

Andrew Maloney grew up in the backseat of a car, traveling across the States and abroad with his healing evangelist parents.

He graduated from the University of North Texas with an arts degree in writing and has ghostwritten and edited more than a dozen nonfiction books. Andrew and his wife, Christy, live in the Cross Timbers area of north Texas with their two sons, Connor and Christian.
