Seventy year old Clay Morgan and two of his sons are taking a three thousand mile, cross country road trip mostly down Route 66, to his third son's wedding. Making a deal with their father, Dad will tell stories if they seek his favorite snack...microwave pigskins. He weaves a Christian based comic romance where a devoted Klansman and his daughter fall in love with people they shouldn't. There is a California town called Opportunity, where people are crazy about their pigs, a young pastor finds love for the first time, and lives are changed when God places a Ray Charles CD in the cafe juke box. Through it all, Dad becomes a hero when he gives a heart-felt wedding toast to the newlywed couple and influences an in-law to stand up for himself. However, he creates unforgiving enemies by expressing a negative opinion at the rehearsal dinner.

In concept the National Baseball Hall of Fame honors the greatest players and contributors to the game. Players such as Ruth, Gehrig, Cobb, Mays, and Aaron are rightfully enshrined there. Other players--Pee Wee Reese, Jesse Haines, Rube Marquard, et al.--have been elected despite less than overwhelming statistics.Presented here are 39 men who, if measured by the standards applied to the second-tier players elected, deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. Through an objective analysis of their statistics and importance to their teams or to baseball, the careers of the players, coaches, umpires, and managers included are seen to equal or surpass many of those players already anointed. Numerous charts compare the prospective Hall of Famers with those previously elected at that position.
