Tom Mendicino introduced college-bound Charlie Beresford and high-school baseball hero Kevin “KC” Conroy in KC, At Bat. Now KC is trying to find his way—if he can just figure out where to look…

KC has spent most of his twenty years working his way to the minor leagues. One drunken fight in a Spokane gay club, and he’s thrown it all away. Convinced he can’t return to his former coach’s devoutly Christian household, KC thumbs his way to Seattle.

If he’s no longer the Mighty KC, destined to have his stats on a Topps trading card, who is he? The loser his mother always warned he would be? An imposter praying in vain for God to change him? Bad luck and a busted nose bring him to Eugene, Oregon, where he finds unlikely friends, work, and even a new purpose. But day by day he’s gaining something else: courage to play from the heart, no matter what the result might be…
